What make a rooster
Honey, crow 'bout the break of day?
To let the kidman know
That the main man is on his way

I'm a stranger here
Honey, just stopped in yo' town
If I ask you for a favor
Mama, please don't turn me down

(guitar & instrumental)

'Play it! '

She's a long, tall woman
With the meat shakin' on her bone
Ev'rytime she shakes
Some skinny gal have lost her home

(harmonica & instrumental)

'Blow that thing Gillum, blow it! '

Get yo' ride from a pony
Get yo' sweet milk from a cow
Get yo' po'k chop from a boar hog
Get yo' pigmeat from a sow

(guitar & instrumental)

'Play it out! '

(harmonica & instrumental to end)

'Yeah, man! '
