You pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
What a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead)
You pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
What a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead)

Them say, the cat's got a nine life
But this man got ninety-nine life, 'cause
Them pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
What a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead)

Them boil one pot of chocolate tea
And all the fried fish they caught in the sea
They also got six quart o' rum
Saying that they waiting for the nine night to come

The last time I heard them say
That this man was dead (This man was dead)
They find him black eyes and them lay it all
Upon his head (The man was dead)

Now the procession leads to the cemetery
The man all a howl, don't you bury me
You pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
What a hard man fe dead

Them boil one cup of chocolate tea
And all the fried fish they caught in the sea
They also got six quart o' rum
Saying that they waiting for the nine night to come

The last time I heard them say
That this man was dead (This man was dead)
They find him black eyes and them lay it all
Upon his head ('Pon his head)

You should see them goin' to the cemetery
The old man holla howl, won't you bury me
Them drop the box and run, what a whole lot o' fun
What a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead)

You pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
What a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead)
You pick him up, you lick him down, him bounce right back
I am a hard man fe dead (Hard man fe dead Hard man fe dead)
