Dusty Springfield - That Old Sweet Roll Lyrics




Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-ho

Listen, I've been down so low
That the bottom looked like up
Once I felt like second saves
Was enough to fill my cup
Now I've offered all I have
But it ain't no way to live
Being taken by the ones who have
The least amount to give

Singing hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Got to find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho

I wanna tell you
Once I met the devil
He was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
Said I could have my pick
But when he laid the paper on me
And showed me where to sign
I said "Thank you very kindly
But I'm in too great a need of mine"

Singing hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi, oh
Got to find me a piece of that sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho, yeah

Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-ho, yeah
Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Talking 'bout hi-de-hi-de-ho

    Awesome.

  2. Ramoncito el Bueno

    Absolutely on par with Carole King and Bobby D. Thanks for sharing. The rest of the LP is just as good in my humble opinion. Best Wishes from Denver, CO, USA!
