Yeah! My Bucket's Got A Hole In It
I can't buy no beer.
Well I'm standin' on a corner - With a bucket in my hand
I'm waitin' for a woman - That ain't got no man.
CHORUS
Well, I went upon the mountain - I looked down in the sea
I seen the crabs and the fishes - Doin' the be-bop- bee.
CHORUS
Well, there ain't no use - of me workin' so hard
When I got a woman - in the boss man's yard.

And now we sit together - on the running board.
