Now listen here folks, there's one thing sure,
My old pencil won't write no more
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I lay down at my bed, just to write a line,
I could feel my old pencil droppin' forward all the time
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I gets outta my bed, down on the floor,
I was worryin' 'bout my old pencil won't write no more
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I met a hot mama, I wanted to love her so bad,
I lost all the lead in my pencil I had
Now, the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I hugged and kissed her, all last night,
It wasn't nothin' doin', my old pencil wouldn't write
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

You sure can tell when a man's pencil is wrong,
His mama's always, shiftin' from home
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

Now listen here man, you ought to know,
Can't write for that woman you have to let her go
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
Oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more
