Now a country boy named Shorty
Had to prove who could run the fastest

And he also had the looks
That can't be found in books
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across

Now Dan had been in training
He made up his mind old Shorty
You know Dan with his long legs flying
Shorty heard him holler out

That's what Miss Lucy said
You know it's you that I want to wed
But Shorty wasn't worried
'Cause old Lucy had fixed the race
About the turtle and the hare, you know that thing
He found Shorty waiting there
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across

And oh Lord it's you I want to wed
