Nina Simone - Little Liza Jane Lyrics




Where is my tambourine wait a minute I'll get your tambourine
Got my tambourine get your thing baby
What's wrong with you what is it you want
Can't forget my tambourine boy want a minute
This is a folk tune nad it's called little liza jane
We get some rhythm started here and see what happens

I got a beau you ain't got none little liza jean
I got a beau you ain't got none little liza jean
I got a beau you ain't got none little liza jean

Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean

Come my love and live with me

Come my love and live with me

Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean
Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean

Hambone hammer where you've been
Down by the river making gin
I know a man that's three feet tall
Drink his liquor and has a ball
Saw him just the other day
He had a horse and a ball of hay

Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little liza jean little liza jean

Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean
Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean

He took me to his great big town
Lots of people standing around
They were listening to a great big band
The bestest music in the land
I tell you once and tell you twice
Enjoy yourself and live your life

Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little liza jean little liza jean
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little lisa jane jane little liza
Little liza jean little liza jean

Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean
Oh little liza liza jane oh little liza liza jean

    One set of people enjoy these music, another set hear greatness and try to but can't really because it grab on to your 💓 pulling it out of your chest to know these blacks with beating down soul from slavery still sing and shine in an era of brutality and they gratefully still they done it. How the brain work it's hard to sing in distress but they done , the made it. my people my people. Imagine all races feelings for these songs are 100% the same but just because of dark skin, wide nose, thick lips it's a different.

  22. Billy Murray Fan

    She is so horrible. I not like a song by her. I like my baby just cares for me,but her version eho is only noise. I like the version by Billy Murray and Walter Scanlan (1930) and the version by Billy Uke Carpenter (1930.) I not be her fans. I be not fans of horrible singers. AND NO I’M NOT RASICT. I’m W C Handy fan and he was a black man a d I love both black and white people.
