I don't go out walking
I ain't for no talking
My baby's done left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'
If I had been scheming
Instead of just dreaming
He'd never have left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'

Sittin all day without holding my baby
Makes me so blue and sad
If he don't hurry and come back
It's a cinch to drive me mad
Now if I don't find him
I hope you'll remind him
That I'm staying where he left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'

All day
Don't go out a walking
And I for no talking
My baby's done left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'

All day
If I had been scheming
Instead of just dreaming
He'd never have left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'
Sittin all day without holding my baby

I miss my lonely papa
If he don't hurry and come back
It's a cinch to, I'll blow my toppa
Now if I don't find him
I hope you'll remind him
That I'm staying where he left me
Just a sittin' and a rockin'

Rockin' and a sittin'
Sittin' and a rockin'
All day
