Tell Automatic Slim 
Tell Razor Totin' Jim 
Tell Butcher Knife Totin' Annie 
Tell Fast Talkin' Fanny 

Tonight we're gonna pitch a ball 
Down to that union hall 
Gonna romp and tromp 'till midnite 

We're gonna fuss and fight 'till daylight 
We're gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long 

Tell Poodle I'll tell him here 
Tell Albert I'll see him near 
Tell old Pistol Pete

We're really gonna throw a mess 
We're gonna break out all the windows 

Gonna kick down all the doors 
We're gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long 
Tell Fats and Washboard Sam 
That everybody's gonna jam 

Just shake it Boxcar Joe 
We got sawdust on the floor 
Tell Chicken Head Till I Die 
We're gonna have a time 

When the fish head fills the air 
Be snuff(skunk) juice everywhere 
We're gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long
