Lyrics:

Good mornin’ ‘lil school girl,
can I go home, can I go home with you?
Tell your mother and your father,
I’m a little school boy too

Woke up this mornin’,
woke up this mornin’,
I didn’t know what to,
I didn’t know what to do
I didn’t have no blues,

I’m gettin’ me an airplane,
I’m gettin’ me an airplane,
get in my airplane
Gon’ fly all oh-oh, gon’ fly all over this land
I’m gonna find my little school girl,
find her in the world somewhere

Good mornin’ ‘lil school girl,
good mornin’ ‘lil school girl
Can I go home with, can I go home with,
can I go home with you?
Tell your mother and your father,
Johnny little school boy too

Come be my baby, come be my baby,
I buy you a diamond, I buy you a diamond ring
You don’t be my little baby,
I ain’t gonna buy you a doggone ring

  1. SBW’s first recording for Bluebird and a big seller in May 1937.

    Rival Decca wasted no time in getting Sleepy John Estes in August to record Airplane Blues to the tune of Good Mornin’ ‘lil School Girl – it’s opening stanza being

    I’m gonna get in my airplane, I’m gonna get in my airplane
    I’m gonna rise all over, I’m gonna rise all over your town
