Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with
You
Tell your moma and your papa, I'm a little schoolboy
Too
Come on now pretty baby, I just can't help myself
You're so young and pretty, I don't need nobody else
Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with
You
Don't you hear me crying

I'm gonna leave you baby about the break of day
On account of the way you treat me, I got to stay away
Come on now pretty baby, I told you to come on home
You know I love you baby, I gotta get you all alone
Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with
You
Can't you hear me crying

I'm gonna buy me an airplane, fly all over your town
Tell everybody baby, Lord know you're fine

I want to be your chauffeur
I want to ride with your little machine
I want to put a tiger, baby
I want to put a tiger, baby
I want to put a tiger, baby
Hey in your sweet little tank
Hey baby now, yes I do
Huh, oh yes I do now

That big ass guy on bass behind Muddy on the cover is Willie Dixon.

 
That other fella back there is a young Buddy Guy. You may have heard of him.

Racist? How did you arrive at such a ridiculous conclusion?  It's much more likely that this song has fewer ratings because it's not played very often.  Wake up yourself.

 
Exactly thank you!

sublime

Zep ripped Willie off but damn they did it well...upstroke vs downstroke

Muddy Waters is the Man. and the world will never understand. they just cram "societies views" on everyone
and its not racist that not alot of people rated it. the race card is Null now adays
This is...IT.

COOL.

On our time, this guy would be thrown into jail for singing that song :) 

 

the same with the beatles and "getting better"   man i was cruel to my woman - i beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved

a little misogyny anyone? 
Damn this sounds good.
"good morning little school girl" - yikes! lol!
Was just about to comment when Bill commented lol!
 
Around here, schoolgirls are working on graduate degrees or post-doctorate research.  Song's as apropos now as it was then.  'Specially since it's finally springtime ...
COOL.

Agreed.  Very awesome sound.

Good morning little school girl...?

Muddy-Muddy!!!!


I was on a flight from London to Toronto back in 1988. Ric Lee from Ten Years After was sitting next to me and we struck up a conversation. He mentioned that Ten Years After was playing a blues festival outside of Toronto and that Buddy Guy would be there.
I lent him the headphones of my "Walkman" and had him listen to "Good Morning Little School Girl" by Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy.
His response was, "We really ruined that song, didn't we... "
I'm not sure that I've ever heard a cover of a song that Muddy did that was better than his. I've had this lp since 1971 and have gone through two copies of it - I'll probably need to get the CD soon,
Excellent! {#Guitarist} 

Muddy Waters - Good Morning School Girl
G-Love - Ma Mere

Best segue I've heard in a long time!  I love this whole album... I will have to pull it out and give it a spin.  Thanks RP!

"Good morning little schoolgirl, can I go home with you?" Ah, those were such innocent pre-pedo-paranoiac times. Even more amazing is seeing a pic of a young Muddy Waters - I always thought he was born 60 years old with a smoke- and alcohol-seasoned voice. Even grizzled old blues singers were young lads once upon a time :o)

He did sing about sex an awful lot. As we say this side of the Pond, he was like a dog with two dicks (US trans: horndog).

 
Muddy Waters can't hold a candle to John Lee Hooker when it comes to singing about sex. {#Rolleyes}
Oh yeah!!!!{#Dancingbanana}
Ye-hawww!

Thanks, I needed that.

This is the third time Bill has played it since my upload. It still sounds good.  I'm gonna have to sit down and listen to the vinyl version tonight. It's Friday night after all.

I'm a big fan of acoustic blues, and am really digging this right now!

It's Muddy's only acoustic album. I have the LP. On this one he truly is a folk singer.
Funny album title {#Arrowu}. True, blues is a pure form of "folk" music, but it strikes me as funny nevertheless.

The sounds of 1950s Chicago spring to life in this musical drama based on the true story of Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody), a bar owner turned record mogul who signs a lineup of future legends to his fledgling label, Chess Records. He eventually crosses paths with the likes of Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Chuck Berry (Mos Def) and Etta James (Beyoncé Knowles), changing the face of popular music forever.


It's like Muddy is playing here in my living room.
