Dandoo, Dandoo; He hung it up upon a pin,
To ma clamadore clax to ma clingo. He hung it up upon a pin, In about three jerks jerked off its skin, To ma clore, to ma clore, To ma clamadore clax to ma clingo.

Dandoo, Dandoo; He threw his sheepskin around his wife's back,
To ma clamadore clax to ma clingo. He threw his sheepskin around his wife's back, And, O my Lord, how he made his whip crack! To ma clore, to ma clore, To ma clamadore clax to ma clingo.
