now i was born in tennessee
and i was married when i was three
my husband coultnt wait fer me
cause he was 47

my kinfolk supp and head him home
said i was married far too young
and i must wait
till i become
a growed up gal of seven

so i yupps and marries my brother in law
i didn’t have to ask my paw
my maw said shucks he ain’t your paw
your paws your uncle fud (pronounced fuuuud)

refrain: deeda deeda dada deeda dada deeda dada dee bombombombom bombom

my uncle fud says a no he warrent
your cousin luke is the guilty varmit
they wayy laid mo that night
con sarn it
got a relatives in my blood

so that makes my cousin
my sista sue
darnd if we know who is who
my nephew is my yuncle too
its just one big happy family

well i gets tard (tired!) of my brother in law
so i thought i’d tarry
with with my nit wit uncle on my nephews side
my nitwit uncle harry

now he sets around
and he wittles good
he goes a brong brong brong (take finger and twiddle lips)
and he does it good
i’d sure marry him if i could
but he’s got six wives already

refrain: deeda deeda dada deeda dada deeda dada dee bombombombom bombom

there must be something uncle harrys got
that make them women hang around alot
he chased me once
and i got caught
way down in tennessee

but thats just the reason i longs to be
in the hills of tennessee
with with my uncle harry just amusin me
he goes a brong brong brong brong brong (take finger and twiddle your lips)
