Come all you folks and start to walk, I'm fixing to start my dozen talk 
What you're thinking about ain't on my mind, that stuff you got is the sorriest kind 
Now you're a sorry mistreater, robber and a cheater 
Slip you in the dozens, your papa and your cousin 

Your mama do the lordy lord 
Come all of you women's outta be in the can, out on the corner stopping every man, 
Hollering "Soap is a nickel and the towel is free, I'm pigmeat, pappy, now who wants me?" 
You's a old mistreater, robber and a cheater 

Slip you in the dozens, your papa and your cousin 
Your mama do the lordy lord 
Now the funniest thing I ever seen, tom cat jumping on a sewing machine 
Sewing machine run so fast, took 99 stitches in his yas, yas, yas 

Now he's a cruel mistreater, robber and a cheater 
Slip you in the dozens, your papa and your cousin 
Your mama do the lordy lord 
Now I'm gonna tell you all about old man Bell, he can't see but he sure can smell 

Fish-man passed here the other day, hollering "Hey, pretty mama, I'm going your way" 
I know all about your pappy and your mammy, 
your big fat sister and your little brother Sammy, 
your auntie and your uncle and your ma's and pa's, 

they all got drunk and showed their Santa Claus 
Now they're all drunken mistreaters, robbers and a cheaters 
Slip you in the dozens, your papa and your cousin 
Your mama do the lordy lord
