Song: Mama Look A Boo Boo by Nat King Cole & Harry Belafonte

From The Ultimate Harry Belafonte Collection (live) NBCTV 1957

Lyrics:

I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
I leave my whole house and home
My children don't want me no more
Bad talk inside de house dey bring
And when I talk they start to sing
Mama, look a boo boo they shout
Their mother tell them shut up your mout'
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly so
Shut your mout', go away
Mama, look a boo boo dey
Shut your mout', go away
Mama, look a boo boo dey
I couldn't even digest me supper
Due to the children's behavior
John (Yes, pa) come here a moment
Bring de belt, you're much too impudent
John says it's James who started first
James tells the story in reverse
I drag my belt from off me waist
You should hear them screamin' round de place
Mama, look a boo boo they shout
Their mother tell them shut up your mout'
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly so
Shut your mout', go away
Mama, look a boo boo dey (uh)
Shut your mout', go away
Mama, look at boo boo dey (uh)
