Sea Lion Woman

Sea Lion Woman

 Sea Lion Woman / Sea Lion
 She drank coffee / Sea Lion
 She drank tea / Sea Lion
 And he gamble lie / Sea Lion

 Way down yonder / Sea Lion
 I'm going maul / Sea Lion
 And the rooster crow / Sea Lion
 and he got no lie / Sea Lion

 Sea lion woman / Sea Lion
 she drank coffee / Sea Lion
 She drank tea / Sea Lion
 And she gamble lie / Sea Lion

 Sea lion woman / Sea Lion
 she drank coffee / Sea Lion
 She drank tea / Sea Lion
 And a gamble lie / Sea Lion
