Sobbin' Women Lyrics

Sobbin' Women - Howard Keel/Betty Hutton/Red Skelton

Tell you about them sobbing women

 

Who lived in the Roman days

 

It seems that they all went swimming

 

While their man was off to graze

 

Well a Roman Troop was riding by

 

And saw them in their me-oh-my

 

So they took them all back home to dry

Least that's what Plutarch says

 

Oh yes them a-women was sobbing

Sobbing sobbing fit to be tied

 

Every muscle was throbbing throbbing

From that riotious ride

 

Seems they cried and kissed

And kissed and cried

All over that Roman countryside

 

So don't forget that

 

When you're taking a bride

 

Sobbing fit to be tied

 

From that riotious ride

 

They never did return their plunder

The victor gets all the loot

 

They carried them home by thunder

To rotundas small but cute

 

And you've never seen so they tell me

Such downright domesticity

 

With a Roman baby on each knee

Named Claudius and Brute

 

Oh yes them a-women was sobbing

Sobbing sobbing passing them nights

 

While the Romans was going out

Hobnobbing starting up fights

 

They kept occupied by sewing lots

Of little old togas for them tots

And saying "Some day women folks will have rights"

 

Passing all of their nights

Just sewing

While the Romans had fights

 

When the men folk went to fetch them

 

The women would not be fetched

 

It seems when the Romans catch them

 

Their lady friends stay catched

Right

Now let this be because it's true

A lesson to the likes of you

Rough them up like them there Romans do

Or else they'll think you're tetched

 

Oh yes them women were sobbing

Sobbing sobbing buckets of tears

 

Mighty sad

 

On account of dobbin dobbin

Really rattled their ears

 

And that ain't all

 

Oh they acted angry and annoyed

 

But secretly they were overjoyed

 

You might recall that

 

When corralling your steers

Oh oh oh them poor little dears

 

Oh yes them a-women was sobbing

Sobbing sobbing weeping a ton

Ah them sobbing women

Just remember what Robin Robin

Robin Hood would have done

 

Ah them sobbing women

We'll be just like them there merry men

 

And make them all merry once again

And though they'll be a-sobbing for a while

 

Oh yes we're gonna make them

 

Sobbing women smile
