Lyrics: First verse A dusky coon, who came to spoon, his lady love from morn till noon, it seemed somehow they never could agree; No matter what he tried to do, She'd say I've had enough of you, Don't try to hand that lovey talk to me. He said ""Hon' don't be cross, I'll let you be the boss."" Chorus Give me just one loving smile, Ev'ry little bit helps, Let me hold your hand a while, Ev'ry little bit helps, Now and then a gentle squeeze, So my aching heart won't freeze, Love me just a tiny bit please, Ev'ry little bit helps. helps. Second verse Said she ""I've heard yourtales of woe, I think it time for you to go, Just put that lovin' gag up on the shelf,"" Then he replied, what shall I do, So I can make, a hit with you, You know I love you only for your self. But as she said ""good bye.""once more she heard him cry (Chorus)
