Lyrics
Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
Big job, a-makin' the rounds (big job)
Big job, of tellin' all the ladies
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

Now the phone is a-ringin' and the news it's a-bringin'
Is going to put an end to all of my wild night life
A greyhounds a-comin' and the wheels are a-hummin'
And my pretty mommas comin' home tonight.

Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
Big job, a-makin' the rounds (big job)
Big job, of tellin' all the ladies
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

The lights were a-burning bright each and every single night
Party's going on till the break of day
If I didn't make it clear ladies stay away from here
It'll be an hour and a half away.

I'm a-gonna have a
Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
Big job, a-makin' the rounds (big job)
Big job, of tellin' all the ladies
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

Guess I better scat down to the launder mat
Wash out all of them lipstick stains
Tidy up the house a bit get everything fit
Good thing she isn't comin; ' in by plane.

I'm a-gonna have a
Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
Big job, a-makin' the rounds (big job)
Big job, of tellin' all the ladies
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

Now, I'm a-gonna have a
Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
Big job, a-makin' the rounds (big job)
Big job, of tellin' all the ladies
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

I'm a-gonna have a
Big job, a-pickin' up the pieces (big job)
My pretty momma is a-comin' to town.

(Big job) of tellin' all the ladies
