Repeat verse, substituting these lines
She got two for a nickel, got four for a dime
Would sell you more, but they ain't none of mine
I got a letter from a girl in the room
Now she got something good she got to bring home soon, now
The billy got back in a bumble bee nest
Ever since that he can't take his rest, yeah
You know grandma left and grandpa too
Well I wonder what in the world we children gonna do now
I got a girl, say she long and tall
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feets in the hall
