Emma went fishin', she went with Lu
Lucy stooped down to button her shoe
Emma set down, up on the grass
Bumble bee pushed her on the yass-yass-yass

Now he's a pushin' mistreater
Robber and a cheater
Slipped him in the dozen
His papa am 'er cousin
And her momma doin' the Lordy-Lord

Papa killed a turkey, he thought he was a geese
Sister come along tryin' to get a little piece
Brother tried to show her, she was so fast
Dug all the stuffin' from his yass-yass-yass

Now she's a diggin' mistreater
Robber and a cheater
Slipped him in the dozen
Her papa am 'er cousin
And her momma doin' the Lordy-Lord

Bill and Arthur shootin' dice the other night
Arthur winned the money and he started to fight
Bill tried to hit him, he was too fast
Took his knife and jooked him on his yass-yass-yass

Now he's a jookin' mistreater
Robber and a cheater
Slipped him in the dozen
His papa am 'er cousin
And her momma doin' the Lordy-Lord

Charleston dancin' teacher come to our town
Teachin' everybody how to get it down
Old woman got out a little too fast
Caught the rheumatism on her yass-yass-yass

Now she's a catchin' mistreater
Robber and a cheater
Slipped him in the dozen
His papa was 'er cousin
And her momma doin' the Lordy-Lord

She washed dishes forty years, she never broke a plate
She cooked forty years, she never burned a steak
Meat cuttin' from the block, cut the tender from the tough
Cuttin' forty years says she knows her stuff

Now she's a cuttin' mistreater
Robber and a cheater
Slipped him in the dozen
His papa am 'er cousin
And her momma doin' the Lordy-Lord
