I AIN'T LOOKING FOR TROUBLE.

Words and Music by Bogert A O'Brien.I
While walking down an alley last Tuesday afternoon,
My beat girl was insulted by a dead tough-looking coon;
I started for that Jim Brown, I never was afraid,
But when I tried to call him down he pulled a razor blade.
Well, I ain't lookin' for trouble, I didn't even smile,
Of course, I was uneasy, just for a little while;
As I was in a hurry and had to catch a train,
I only had four minutes, but I caught it just the same.
To-day I met my lady, I asked her for her hand,
She said, "Go 'way. you dead-card! I have got a bran new man."
I said, "I love you baby, I'd surely die for thee;"
She said, "You go And lick Jim Brown And prove your love for me."
I got an invitation to play a poker game,
One hand I held four aces, in my next hand just the same;
A coon said I was cheating, I told him that he lied,
And When I went to take the cash, a great big gun I spied.- Chorus.
