Well, me and my baby was a-walkin' down the road
hoppin' along like two little toads
I looked down at her; I said, 'What can we do?'
She said, 'Let's go someplace where we can hop to the blues!'

I said, 'I didn't know a place where we can do such a thing.'
She said, 'I know a place, and, man, it's just a dream!
It's just a little spot on the outside of town
Where we can really pick 'em up and put 'em down!'
So, we went, yeah we was gone, gone long gone
Well, I'll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

Well, we went to a place called Everybody's
There I met a little chick called the Tennessee Toddy
The reason she was called the Tennessee Toddy 
Was that she was all legs and a little bitty body,
But that cat could go, yeah, she was gone, gone, long gone,
Well I'll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

Well, She was long and lean like a green string bean:
Calm and collected and cool and keen!
She was all of this and a whole lot more;
M'Baby saw me watching her, she threw me out the door
And we were gone, yeah, we were gone, long gone,
Well, I'll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

Well, took baby home and she said, 'Good night.'
She said, 'Be real good and sleep real tight!'
But I rushed right back to Everybody's
'Cause I had to get acquainted with the Tennessee Toddy!
So we left, yeah, I was gone, gone, long gone,
Well I'll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

Well, I was back there jumpin' with Toddy at three
When in walked a gent twice as big as me
He looked real mean and mad and sore;
He made for me and I made for the door,
Just a-runnin', yeah, I was gone, gone, gone, gone
Well, I'll tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

Well, I didn't know the Toddy had man of her own
Made out of nothing but mussle and bone
I know I'd rather have my Baby instead
But that big ape put knots on my head
So I left there, yeah, I was gone, gone, long gone,

Well, there ain't no more, so this is the end of my song...
