(Spencer Williams)
As recorded by Monette Moore on Columbia 14105D, 1925.

Papa, papa, let me tell to you,
Daddy, daddy, here's what you must do:
When you come around me, precious turtledove,
You better come here ready if you want to win my love.

Get it fixed, sweet papa.
Get it fixed, to treat me proper.
Don't come here tellin' me a lot of lies,
'Cause a lyin' man I do despise.

Get it fixed, I'm screamin'.
I'm onto all your tricks.
I don't want no messin' 'round with my sweet love,
So, daddy, get it fixed.

Papa, papa, better do your stuff.
Daddy, daddy, but don't be too rough.
Mama wants some lovin' kisses right away.
Want 'em when I want 'em; come on, honey, don't delay.

Get it fixed, sweet papa.
Get it fixed, to love me, papa.
Don't make me think you got a lot of dough,
'Cause if you ain't got nothin', tell your mama so.

Get it fixed; don't fool me.
Don't get your dates all mixed.
I won't stand no leavin' if you win my love,
So, daddy, get it fixed—I'll scream it.
Daddy, get it fixed—can't you hear me?
Daddy, get it fixed.
