Your Mother's Son-in-law lyrics

Alberta nichols / mann holiner

You dont have to have a hanker
To be a broker or a banker
No siree, just simply be
My mothers son-in-law.
Neednt even think of tryin
To be a mighty social lion
Sipping tea, if youll be
My mothers son-in-law,
Aint got the least desire
To set the world on fire
Just wish youd make it proper
To call my old man papa
You dont have to sing like bledsoe
You can tell the world I said so
Cant you see youve got to be
My mothers son-in-law.

You dont have to sing like jessel
You can tell the world I said so
Cant you see, youve got to be
My mothers son-in-law.
