Woah Mule Get up in the Alley

This song was recorded by Gus Cannon and the Jug Stompers in 1928 and in 1965 by the Kweskin Jug Band. It doesn't seem to have a lot to do with mules, but it is a really fun song.

Lyrics: 

Last night I thought if I could search the streets I could find my Sue
I know that she has always been so good and true

Get up in the parlor just as fast you can
I’m gonna show you how to play the old gin hand
Sayin’ woah mule. Get up in the alley singing wah, wah, wah.
I said a woah mule. Get up in the alley singing wah, wah, wah.

Let me find my Sue tonight I’m gonna teach her some more
Get up in the parlor just as fast you can . . .

Let me find my Sue tonight I’m gonna love her some more
Get up in the parlor just as fast you can . . .
