INTRO

Down in Hogan's Alley live Miss Nancy Ann
She always fussin' and squabblin' with her man
When I heard Miss Nancy say,
"Why do you treat your gal that way?"

I went down the alley, other night
Nancy and her man had just had a fight
He hit Miss Nancy 'cross her head
Then she rose to her feet, she said,

"You low-down alligator, just watch me soon or later,
Gonna catch you with your britches down.
You 'buse me and mistreats me, you dog around and beat me,
Still I'm gonna hang around.
Take all my money, black up both of my eyes,
Give it to another woman, come home and tell me lies.
You low down alligator, just watch me soon or later,
Gonna catch you with your britches down, I mean,
Catch you with your britches down."

Gonna catch you with your britches down, I mean, man,
Catch you with your britches down."
