Mean Old Bed Bug Blues

OH MY GOD.  Did you know Bessie Smith wrote a song about bed bugs?!  I did not ever imagine anything so fucking fantastic.  I have nothing to add:

Gals, bed bugs sure is evil, they don’t mean me no good
Yeah, bed bug sure is evil, they don’t mean me no good
Thinks he’s a woodpecker and I’m a chunk of wood

When I lay down at night, I wonder how can a poor gal sleep
When I lay down at night, I wonder how can a poor gal sleep
When some is holding my hand, others eating my feet

Bed bug as big as a jackass, will bite you and stand and grin
Bed bug as big as a jackass, will bite you and stand and grin
Will drink all the bed bur for them turn around and bite you again

Something moan in the corner, I went over and see
Something moan in the corner, I went over and see
It was the bed bug a prayin’, Lord, gimme some more cheese
