Muskrat, oh muskrat, what makes you smell so bad?
Layin' around the farmer's house eatin' up all he had
Eatin' up all he had, eatin' up all he had, boys
Eatin' up all he had

Muskrat, oh muskrat, I'll track him through the sand
Muskrat, oh muskrat, gonna catch him if I can
Catch him if I can, I'll catch him if I can, boys
I'll catch him if I can

I found out where he's been a-using last night

Muskrat, oh muskrat, catch you sure as you're born
Runnin' around all over the field eatin' up all my corn
Eatin' up all my corn, eatin' up all my corn, boys
Eatin' up all my corn

No, no every big ear, eatin' fine

Muskrat, oh muskrat, I'll trap him on the bank
I'll skin him out and stretch his hide and tack it on a plank
I'll tack it on a plank, tack it on a plank, boys
I'll tack it on a plank

Muskrat, oh muskrat, trap him on the farm
Sell the hides when they get dry to keep some pretty gal warm
To keep some pretty gal warm, keep some pretty gal warm, boys
To keep some pretty gal warm

Muskrat, muskrat, what makes you smell so bad?
Layin' around the farmer's house eatin' up all he had
Eatin' up all he had, eatin' up all he had, boys
Eatin' up all he had

Even been in the onion patch
