Den de Merchant say to de Farmer,
"Whut do you tink o5 dat?
Ef you kin kill de Boll Weevil
I'll give you a bran-new Stetson hat,
A Stetson hat,
Oh, a Stetson hat.55
Oh, de Farmer say to de Merchant, "I ain5t made but only one bale, * An5 beŁo5 I bring yo5 dat one I'll fight an5 go to jail, I511 have a home, I'll have a home.55
De Sharpshooter say to de Boll Weevil,
"What you doin5 in dis square?55
An5 the Boll Weevil say to de Sharpshooter,
"Ise makin5 my home in here,
Here in dis square,
Here in dis square.55
Oh, de Boll Weevil say to de Dutchman,

An5 when yo5 come to make yo5 crop
I'll punch out every square,
When de sun gits hot,
When de sun gits hot.55
De Boll Weevil say to de Farmer, "You better lemme alone, I5ve et up all yo5 cotton
