Thirty-two teeth in a jawbone
Alabama's trying for none
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run
The reason the poor girls love him
Promise them everything
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring

Run, run
Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just sit down and leave and walk away

Major Domo Billy Bojangles
Sat down and have a drink with me
Said what about Alabama that keeps a-coming back to me?
I heard your plea in the court house
Witness box began to rock and rise
Forty-nine sister states had Alabama in their eyes

Run, run
Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just sit down and leave and walk away

Major said why don't we give him
Rope enough to hang himself?
No need to worry the jury, they'll probably take care of themselves
Twenty-third psalm Major Domo
Reserve me a table for three
Down in the valley of the shadow, just you, Alabama, and me

Run, run
Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just turn 'round and leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just turn 'round and leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just sit down and leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just sit down and leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, get away
Alabama getaway, get away
Only way to please me, just sit down and leave and walk away
