Canned Heat

You can shake it
You can break it
You can hang it on the wall
I don't want it, mama, if it falls . . .
My jelly
My roll
Sweet mama, don't you let it fall 
Sweet mama, don't you let it fall

(From their 1970 album, Future Blues.  The singer is Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson, who died of a drug overdose just a month after that album was released.  He was 27.  Here's a link to an article that compares Wilson's version of this song to recordings of the song from the 1920s and 1930s.)
