Well, me and my baby was a-walkin down the road
Just a-hoppin along like two little toads
I looked down at her; I said, What can we do?
She said, Lets go someplace where we can bop to the blues

I said, I dont know a place where we can do such a thing"
She said, I know that place, and, man, its just a dream
Its just a little spot on the outside of town
Where we can really pick em up and put em down

So we went yeah, we were gone, gone along gone
And Ill tell you all about it in the very next verse of my song

Well we went to a place called Everybodys
There I met a little chick called the Tennessee Toddy
The reason she was called the Tennessee Toddy
Was that she was all legs with a little bitty body

But that cat could go, yeah, she was gone, gone along gone
Well Ill tell you all about it in the very next verse of my song

Well, she was long and lean like a green string bean
Calm and collected and cool and keen!
She was all of this and a whole lot more
When my baby saw me watching her, she threw me out the door

And we were gone, yeah, we were gone, along gone
Well, Ill tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song

Well I took my baby home and she said, Good night
She said, Be real good and sleep real tight!
But I rushed right back to Everybodys
Cause I had to get acquainted with the Tennessee Toddy

So I left, yeah, I was gone, gone along gone
And Ill tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song.

I was back there jumpin with Toddy at three
When in walked a gent twice as big as me
He looked real mean and mad and sore
He made for me and I made for the door

Just a-runnin, yeah, I was gone, gone along gone
Well Ill tell you more about it in the very next verse of my song

Well, I didn't know that Toddy had a man of her own
Made out of nothin' but a muscle and bone
I know I'd rather have a baby instead
But that big ape would knocks on my head

So I left there, yeah I was gone, gone long gone
Well there ain't no more so this is the end of my song
