Now what you got there man?
A rug? what do you want for it?
Fifteen dollars?
I don't want that thing, I don't want that thing
I don't want that thing, I wouldn't have it laying around on my floor

You as well was here yesterday, and the day before
Trying to get me to put that thing on this floor
I don't want that thing, I don't want that thing
I don't want that thing, I wouldn't have it laying around on my floor

Oh what pretty a bed, pretty mattress
No springs? No?
I can't use that thing, I can't use that thing
I can't use that thing, I wouldn't have it laying around on my floor

What's with that man over yonder?
Cripple? Pegleg? ______? No?
I can't use that thing, I can't use that thing
I can't use that thing, I wouldn't have him hopping around on my floor

Look what a pretty doll
What you want for it? Ten dollars? What's that?
I don't use that thing, I can't use that thing
I can't use that thing, I wouldn't have him laying around on my floor

What's that man got in his hand? Money? How much?
Fifteen dollars? That's all?
I can't use that thing, I can't use that thing
I can't use that thing, I wouldn't have him laying around on my floor

Oh what that man selling over yonder?
Bananas? Show me!
Yes I want that thing, yes I want that thing
Yes I want that thing, and if I don't care where he goes

Banana man, sure I will
Now what he selling over yonder?
_____ _____ on a big round stick?
Sure enough
Yes I want that man, yes I want that man
Yes I want that man, and I don't care where he goes
