Good mornin', captain

Good mornin', captain
Good morning' son
Do you need another muleskinner out on your new road line? 

Well, I like to work, I'm rollin' all the time
I like to work, I'm rollin' all the time
I can pop my initials on that mule's behind

Well, it's hey, little water boy, bring your water 'round
Hey, little water boy bring your water 'round
If you don't like your job, let the water bucket down

Well, I'm workin' on that new road at a dollar and a dime a day
I'm workin' on that new road at a dollar and a dime a day
I got three women watin' on a Saturday night just to blow my pay
