Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: 'Hostile to the opposite sex' songs
Subject: RE: BS: Best 'Hostile to the opposite sex' song
The only version of "The Blues in the Night" that I've seen printed had choices for a lot of words:

My mama done tol' me
When I was in kneepants/pigtails,
My mama done tol' me, son/hon,

Unless Mercer wrote one version first, all he gets credit or blame for is playing both sides.
