Sleepin' in the swamps last night, down in the Everglades
Sleepin' in the swamps last night, down in the Everglades
Woke and found the alligators 'bout to make a raid

Heard 'em talkin' softly, said, "We're gonna have dark meat."
Heard 'em talkin' softly, said, "We're gonna have dark meat."
Gee, their mouths did water, thought that they was gonna eat

My flesh commenced to crawlin', my skin began to itch
My flesh commenced to crawlin', my skin began to itch
It was time for travelin', but the swamp was dark as sin

Soon the moon was shinin' softly through the old cane brake
Soon the moon was shinin' softly through the old cane brake
Got myself together for a dash I tried to make

The sweat it was a-popping, hair was standing on my head
The sweat it was a-popping, hair was standing on my head
I said, "Lord, have mercy, or that woman's gonna be dead."
