Light in the parlor, fire in the grate

Clock on the mantle sayin’ it's a gettin' late

Curtains on the windows, snowy white

The parlor is pleasant on Sunday night

Ida Red, Ida Red, I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red

Ida Red, Ida Red, I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red

  *

 

Lamp on the table, picture on the wall

There's a pretty sofa and that's not all

If I'm not mistaken I'm sure I'm right

Somebody else is in the parlor tonight

Ida Red, Ida Red, I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red (2)

 

*

 

Chicken in a bread tray peckin' out dough

Granny will your dog bite, no chil’ no

Hurry up boys and don't fool around

Grab your partner, truck on down

Ida Red, Ida Red, I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red (2)

 

*

My ol' Missus swore to me

When she died she'd set me free

She lived so long till her head got bald

She took a notion not to die at all

Ida Red, Ida Red, I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red (2)

 


Lights burning dim, fire burning low

Somebody says it’s time to go

I hear a whisper gentle and light

Don’t forget to come next Sunday night

Ida Red, Ida Red I'm a plumb fool 'bout Ida Red (2)
