"You Rascal You"
Writer(s)Sam Theard

"You Rascal You" is an American song written by Sam Theard in 1929,[1] and legally titled "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead."[2] The lyrics take the form of threats and complaints leveled against a man who has repaid the singer's hospitality and kindness by running off with the singer's wife.

It has been covered by Clarence Willams, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Louis Jordan, Jimmie Noone, Cab Calloway, Louis Prima, John Fogerty, Dr. John, Henry "Rufe" Johnson, Serge Gainsbourg, Ingrid Michaelson, Eddy Mitchell, Taj Mahal, and Hanni El Khatib, whose version is being used in a TV ad for the movie The Imposter.

Sam Theard made a follow-up song in 1930 titled "I Done Caught That Rascal Now".[1]
