He sees a little boweevil, sees him movin' in the, Lordie, yeah
Well you can plant your cotton but you won't get a half a bale, mama, yeah
Bo weevil, bo weevil, where's your native home, mama, yeah?
Bo weevil, bo weevil, where's your native home, mama, yeah?

The next time I seen him, Lord, he had his family there, mama, yeah
He sucks all your blossom and leaves your hedges square, mama, yeah
Bo weevil, bo weevil, won't you treat me fair, mama, yeah?
Bo weevil, bo weevil, got a one way ticket there, mama, yeah

Goin' down next year, gonna give Karachi hell, mama, yeah
Well you can cage them all in but his friends are everywhere, lordy, yeah
Keep movin', keep movin', boweevil is already there, mama, yeah
Next time he's here rent a package in Leicester Square, mama, yeah

Join me in good living and where has it been goin', mama, yeah
Start wheezing, stop breathing and where's this powder from, mama, yeah
Go faster, go faster, man'll beat him a hundred fold, mama, yeah
