Lyrics: 

Well I cried all night, not a policeman was in sight.
When Imelda get up off the bed-a, she start to play with my finger head-a.
I cried out " Stop it, Melda I ticklish, donít play with my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
She said, " Daddy donít groan, Iím going to bite you down to the bone. "
I felt no pain so what was the use to go and complain.
I felt no pain so what was the use to go and complain. I cried out,
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go go-go-go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. 
" She said, " Daddy itís no use, the finger taste like pineapple juice. "
The louder I shout, the more finger Melda put in her mouth.
The louder I shout, the more finger Melda put in her mouth.
I cried out " Stop it, Melda I ticklish, not with the finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní me finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go go-go-go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. 
" Well I cried all night, not a policeman was in sight.
When Emelda get up off the bed-a, she start to play with my finger head.
I cried out " Stop it, Melda I ticklish, donít play with me finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go oh Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger. "
" Lemme go Melda Marcy, youíre bitiní my finger
