Jim Dixon How Come You Do Me Like You Do? (13) Lyr Add: HOW COME YOU DO ME LIKE YOU DO? 03 Feb 20


Since these lyrics have never been posted at Mudcat before, we might as well post them here. These are from the sheet music found at Temple University:


HOW COME YOU DO ME LIKE YOU DO?
Words and music by Gene Austin & Roy Bergere, ©1924.

1. 'Way soon this mornin' I come rappin' at your door.
You kept me waitin' like you never did before.
That's a sure sign, brown skin, I'll never rap no more (no more).

CHORUS: How come you do me like you do, do, do?
How come you do me like you do?
Why do you try to make me feel so blue?
I ain't done nothin' to you.
[A] Do me right or else just let me be,
'Cause I can beat you doin' what you're doin' to me.

How come you do me like you do, do, do?
How come you do me like you do?

2. Sat up 'til daybreak; couldn't even sleep a wink.
My mind was wand'rin'; all I did was think and think.
The way I've been treated would drive a man to drink (to drink).

CHORUS: How come you do me like you do, do, do?
How come you do me like you do?
Why do you try to make me feel so blue?
I ain't done nothin' to you.
[B] If you rave I'll have to get you told,
For I can change your temp'rature from hot to cold.

How come you do me like you do, do, do?
How come you do me like you do?

PATTER: Don't I let you do just what I want you to?
Don't I let you cheer me up when I feel blue?
And when it comes to huntin' jobs, I never shirk.
I can always find a job but you won't go to work.
Don't I always try to let you have my way?
And still you treat me mean and meaner ev'ry day.
You better treat me right or let me be,
'Cause I can beat you doin' what you're doin' to me.
