Quit yo' long-time talkin' 'bout yo' heavy-hipted woman, She done gone, oh, babe, she done gone. Quit yo' long-time talkin' 'bout yo' heavy-hipted woman, She done gone, oh, babe, she done gone.
Got my learnin' from a coal-black nigger, In de mines, oh, babe, in de mines.
My woman, she keeps on a-grumblin',
'Bout a new pair o' shoes, oh, babe, 'bout a new pair o' shoes.
I gave her five silver dollars,
Jus' to buy some tans, oh, babe, jus' to buy some tans.
She come back a-whoopin' an a-holl'in',
Wid a pair o' brogans, oh, babe, wid a pair o' brogans.
Got a bulldog weighin' nine hunderd,
In my back yard, oh, babe, in my back yard.
When you hear my bulldog barkin', Somebody's 'roun', oh, babe, somebody's 'roun\
[13]
