Yeah, I did all I can do and I can't get along with you
I'm gonna take you to your mama
Pay day, pay day, pay day

And I hate to see that rabbit get away
Get away

Baby, did all I can do and I can't get along with you
I'm gonna take you to your mama
Pay day

Just about a week ago
I'm gonna keep my skillet1 greasy if I can
If I can, if I can

I'm gonna make it to my shanty
'Fore day, 'fore day, 'fore day

Baby, I did all I could do, an' I
I'm gonna take you to your mama
Pay day

Well, and I ain't got no rabbit dog
Lord, I hate to see that rabbit get away
Get away

Baby, did all I can do and I can't get along with you
I'm gon'
