Yonder come-a Willie, he's a-passin' on a hill
He don't dress nice but he tries good to kill
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
Burma Shave, Burma Shave

I bet I've seen a million roads
Of them little red bow-legged
Signs up and down the line
Come on, come on and get it, get it

Pappy ain't a-smart, he ain't but a-quizzin'
But with one thing he knows how to keep 'em all his
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
Burma Shave, Burma Shave

I bet I've seen a million roads
Of them little red bow-legged
Signs up and down the line
Come on, come on and get it, get it

Way down yonder by the forks of the branch
The old sow whistles and the little pigs dance
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
Burma Shave, Burma Shave

I bet I've seen a million roads
Of them little red bow-legged
Signs up and down the line
Come on, come on and get it, get it

Roses are red, violets are blue
You chase me and I'll catch you
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
Burma Shave, Burma Shave

I bet I've seen a million roads
Of them little red bow-legged
Signs up and down the line
Come on, come on and get it, get it
