There was a boy in Arkansas who wouldn't listen to his ma When she told him that he should go to school He'd sneak away in the afternoon take a little walk and pretty soon You'd find him at the local auction barn Well he'd stand and listened carefully then pretty soon he began to see How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly He said oh my it's do or die I've got to learn that auction cry Gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer A 15 dollar bid and now twenty now Will you gimme twenty make it now twenty bi di di bom a twenty now Will you gimme twenty who da ba bi bi da twenty dollar bid I got twenty dollar bid and now twenty five now Will you gimme twenty five make it now twenty five bi di di bom a twenty five now Will you gimme twenty five who da ba bi bi da twenty five dollar bid Well as time went on he did his best and all could see he didn't jest He practiced calling bids both night and day His pop would find him behind the barn just working up an awful storm As he tried to imitate an auctioneer His dad said son we just can't stand to have a mediocre man Sellin' things at action using our name We'll send you off to auction school and then you'll be nobody's fool You can take your place among the best A twenty five dollar bid and now thirty now Will you gimme thirty make it now thirty bi di di bom a thirty now Will you gimme thirty who da ba bi bi da thirty dollar bid A thirty dollar bid and now thirty five now Will you gimme thirty five make it now thirty five bi di di bom a thirty five now Will you gimme thirty five who da ba bi bi da thirty five dollar bid So from that boy who went to school there grew a man who played it cool He came back home a full fledged auctioneer And the the people came from miles around just to hear him make that rhytmic sound That fill their hearts with such a happy cheer His fame spread out from shore to shore but he had all he could do and more Had to buy a plane to get around Now he's the best in all the land let's pause to give that man a hand He's the best of naughty auctioneers I got thirty five dollar bid and now forty dollar forty Will you gimme forty make it forty bi di di bom a forty dollar Will you gimme forty who da ba bi bi da forty dollar bid I got forty dollar bid and now forty five dollar forty five Will you gimme forty five make it forty five bi di di bom a forty five dollar Sold it out now for forty five dollar bid Hey well all right sir Forty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty fifty I sold that hog for for a fifty bid
