KEEP IT TO YOURSELF

KEEP IT TO YOURSELF

Baby, do me a favor, keep our business to yourself.
Please, darling, do me a favor, keep our business to yourself.
I don’t want you to tell nobody in your family,
And don’t mention it to nobody else

Don’t tell your mother,
Don’t tell your father,
Don’t tell your sister,
Don’t mention it to your brother,
Please, darling, keep our business to yourself.
Don’t you tell nobody,
And don’t mention it to nobody else.

You have a husband,
I have a wife,
If you start to talking,
That’s gonna mess up our life,
Please, please baby, keep our business to yourself.
Don’t you tell nobody,
And don’t mention it to nobody else.
Goodbye darling.

Alex or Aleck Miller (1912 – 1965) known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, who used various names, including Rice Miller and Little Boy Blue, before calling himself Sonny Boy Williamson. This was also the name of another popular blues singer and harmonica player, John Lee Curtis Williamson, the original “Sonny Boy” who was killed in a robbery in Chicago in 1948. as he was walking home from a performance at a tavern near his home.
When Miller started using that name, in the early 1940s, he may have tried to exploit Williamson’s fame. Later, to distinguish the two, John Lee Williamson came to be known as Sonny Boy Williamson I or “the original Sonny Boy” and Miller was referred to as Sonny Boy Williamson II.
