Oh! I eat watermelon and I have for years,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
I like watermelon but it wets my ears,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Maybe grass tastes good to a moo cow's mouth,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
But I like chicken 'cause I'm from the south,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well,
Mister gloom be on your way,
If you think you're gonna worry,
you can stop it in a huury,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day!

A woodpecker pecks till he gets his fill,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
But the woodpecker pays 'cause it's on his bill,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Oh! I feed my pigs with molasses yam,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
And they should be sweeter than they really am,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well,
Mister gloom be on your way,
Tho' you haven't any money,
you can still be bright and sunny,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day!

Oh! I hate to hear a choc'late drop,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
But I like to hear a lollypop,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Ev'rything went wrong but it turned out right,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
The skies were gray but the future's bright,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well,
Misteall the day!

A polly is a parrot,
we all know well,
But just what a wolly is
I can't tell.
I wouldn't know a doodle
if one came along,
But polly-wolly-doodle makes a darn good song!
