This song is one I remember from childhood....I think my mother had the lyrics written in an old notebook from her childhood and she used to sing it to us kids. I just found the lyrics and a partial wav file online!

Slap Her Down Again Pa

ARTHUR GODFREY

Come here gol-darned you
Take that and that and that
That's right

Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
Make her tell us more pa
Tell us where she's been
We don't want our neighbors
Talkin' bout our kin
Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again

Well pa and ma were so darn sore
They woke me up one night
There was an awful cussin'
And ma said pa was right
They was a-waitin' sister Bess
Who never kept her word
The Sun came up as Bess came in
And this is what I heard

Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
Make her tell us more pa
Tell us where she's been
We don't want our neighbors
Talkin' bout our kin
Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again

Now poor old Bess got so darn mad
She ran away one day
To meet that travellin' salesman
With city-slickin' ways
We ran and stood beside them though
With shotguns by our sides
Me and Deke and pa and ma
Who yelled as they came by

Why don't you slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
Yeah, make her tell us more pa
Tell us where she's been
You know that we don't want our neighbors
Talkin' bout our kin
Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
 
Now ma and pa they planned for Bess
To marry Deacon Brown
And not that travellin' salesman
Who always came around
They made poor Bessie go to church
Her face was mighty red
The deacon took one look at her
And this is what he said

Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
Make her tell us more pa
Tell us where she's been
We don't want our neighbors
Talkin' bout our kin
Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again

Doesido

Oh yes hot stuff

Well the moral of this story girls
Is don't stay out too late
Unless you take your shoes off
Outside your pappy's gate
If ma don't hear you comin' in
She won't lay down the law
And you won't have to worry
Cause you won't see much of pa

Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again
Make her tell us more pa
Tell us where she's been
We don't want our neighbors
Talkin' bout our kin
Slap her down again pa
Slap her down again

Take that and that and that
