Now she wants, a butter an egg man
From way out in the west
She wants somebody, who's workin' all day
So she's got money, when she wants to play

Now pretty clothes, they'll never be mine
But what she told me the other day
I hope she don't change her mind
Now she wants, a butter an egg man
A great big butter and egg man
From way down south
