« Move It On Over », de Hank Williams (1947)

La jaquette du vinyle de l'album « Move It On Over », de Hank Williams

Ce premier grand succès de Hank Williams raconte comment sa femme l’a mis dehors et comment il s’est ainsi retrouvé à la rue. Enfin, plus exactement, dans un trou à rats avec son chien, à qui il demande à la fin de chaque couplet de se pousser un petit peu. Pendant toute la chanson, il décrit son animal de compagnie comme étant petit, maigre et froid alors qu’il emploie des adjectifs inverses pour lui-même, se présentant comme grand, gros et chaud. 

Paroles de la chanson « Move It On Over »

Came in last night at a half past ten

That baby of mine wouldn't let me in

So move it on over (move it on over)

Move it on over (move it on over)

Move over little dog cause a big dog's movin in

 

She's changed the lock on our front door

My door key, don't fit no more

So get it on over (move it on over)

Scoot it on over (move it on over)

Move over skinny dog cause a fat dog's moving in

 

This dog house here is mighty small

But it's sure better than no house at all

So ease it on over (move it on over)

Drag it on over (move it on over)

Move over old dog cause a new dog's moving in

 

She told me not to play around

But I done let the deal go down

So pack it on over (move it on over)

Tote it on over (move it on over)

Move over nice dog cause a mad dog's moving in

 

She warned me once, she warned me twice

But I don't take no one's advice

So scratch it on over (move it on over)

Shake it on over (move it on over)

Move over short dog cause a tall dog's moving in

 

She'll crawl back to me on her knees

I'll be busy scratching fleas

So slide it on over (move it on over)

Sneak it on over (move it on over)

Move over good dog cause a mad dog's moving in

 

Remember pup, before you whine

That side's yours and this side's mine

So shove it on over (move it on over)

Sweep it on over (move it on over)

Move over cold dog cause a hot dog's moving in
