Beatin' on the ding dong all day long
I go around just singing this song
I got a gal, maybe two or three
Beatin' on the ding dong don't bother me.

Most folks worry when they have no dough
Which can't feel good 'cause of feeling low
I don't worry if I'm broke no more
I ain't rich so I must be poor.

Beatin' on the ding dong don't mean a thing
Just some words that you can sing
Makes no difference if they're right or wrong
Beating on the ding dong all day long.

--- Instrumental ---

Some are happy when they have big cars
To ride around and they puff cigars
Give me a rattle trap model T
I'm as happy as a kid could be.

A house and a flea and a bunch of mice
Out in the barnyard shootin' dice
The house grows cold and steps on a flea
The flea yells fellas there's a house on me.

Beating on the ding dong all day long
I go around just singing this song
I got a gal, maybe two or three
Beatin' on the ding dong don't bother me.

--- Instrumental ---

I stood with my gal on the porch last night
A huggin' and a kissin' till it got daylight
Her pa said get him and I had to stand
A bull dog had me by the seat of the pants.

I don't have nothin' to bother me
As happy as a possum in a lemon tree
If I had a wife that 'd work at all
I wouldn't have work this coming fall.

Beating on the ding dong all day long
I go around just singing this song
I got a gal, maybe two or three
Beatin' on the ding dong don't bother me.

Beatin' on the ding dong don't bother me...
