  • I keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I'm gonna keep 'em that way
    Till the Swallows get back from Texarkana.

    I keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I'm gonna keep 'em that way
    Till the Swallows get back from Louisiana.
    Well, I used to chew 'em off
    I was Nervous over you.
    I missed that clickin', tickin' sound,
    Honey, what I'm gonna do,
    Is keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I keep my fingernails long
    So they Click when I play the piano
    I'm gonna keep 'em that way
    Till the Swallows get back from Alabama.
