Lucille Bogan-Shave em' Dry lyrics

These lyrics were written back in 1935...and she was waaaaay dirty than some of these rappers that our out nowadays...lol


Lucille Bogan (April 1, 1897 - August 10, 1948) was an early Blues singer (among the first to be recorded) who used the pseudonym Bessie Jackson. She was born in Amory, Mississippi and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. Trained in the rowdier Juke Joints of the 1920s she was primarily accompanied by Walter Roland on piano, with whom she recorded over 50 songs, including:

"Shave 'Em Dry"
"Sweet Petunia"
"Tricks Ain't Walkin' No More"
"B.D. Woman's Blues"
"Stew Meat Blues"
"Honeycomb Man"
"Mr. Screw Worm In Trouble"
"Bo Hog Blues"
Most of her songs are thinly veiled, humorous, sexual euphemisms. The theme of prostitution, in particular, features prominently in several of Lucille Bogan's recordings.

"Shave 'Em Dry" was recorded on Tuesday, March 5, 1935 along with an alternate take in which she unabashedly sings the lyrics that she would normally change for a recording and only sing at adult clubs.





SHAVE 'EM DRY (unexpurgated version)

I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb,

I got somethin' between my legs'll make a dead man come,

Oh daddy, baby won't you shave 'em dry?

Aside: Now, draw it out!

Want you to grind me baby, grind me until I cry.

(Roland: Uh, huh.)

Say I fucked all night, and all the night before baby,

And I feel just like I wanna, fuck some more,

Oh great God daddy,

(Roland: Say you gonna get it. You need it.)

Grind me honey and shave me dry,

And when you hear me holler baby, want you to shave it dry.

I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb,

Daddy you say that's the kind of 'em you want, and you can make 'em come,

Oh, daddy shave me dry,

(Roland: She ain't gonna work for it.)

And I'll give you somethin' baby, swear it'll make you cry.

I'm gon' turn back my mattress, and let you oil my springs,

I want you to grind me daddy, 'til the bell do ring,

Oh daddy, want you to shave 'em dry,

Oh great God daddy, if you can't shave 'em baby won't you try?

Now if fuckin' was the thing, that would take me to heaven,

I'd be fuckin' in the studio, till the clock strike eleven,

Oh daddy, daddy shave 'em dry,

I would fuck you baby, honey I'd make you cry.

Now your nuts hang down like a damn bell sapper,

And your dick stands up like a steeple,

Your goddam ass-hole stands open like a church door,

And the crabs walks in like people.

Aside: Ow, shit!

(Roland: Aah, sure enough, shave 'em dry?)

Aside: Ooh! Baby, won't you shave 'em dry

A big sow gets fat from eatin' corn,

And a pig gets fat from suckin',

Reason you see this whore, fat like I am,

Great God, I got fat from fuckin'.

Aside: Eeeeh! Shave 'em dry

(Roland: Aah, shake it, don't break it)

My back is made of whalebone,

And my cock is made of brass,

And my fuckin' is made for workin' men's two dollars,

Great God, round to kiss my ass.

Aside: Oh! Whoo, daddy, shave 'em dry

Haha. Thats cool. I know some of those songs were dirty, but hid them through metaphors ala "sugar walls" or whatever.


"Minnie the moocher" is not explicit, but its an obvious famous example of a sexual subject matter

Heck, there were silent cartoon porn films for christ sake. Early b/w porn must be the holy grail of rare these days
