I'm gonna buy me a banty rooster, gonna put 'im in my back door
Yes, so if another man stop by, boys, flap his wings and then he crows

My hook's in the water, yes, my cock's on top
Yes, my hook's in the water, man, and my cock's on top

Yes, I know my little dog, anywhere I hear him bark
Yes, I know my dog, boys, anywhere I hear him bark
