He's a go getter, go getter
When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get her
Now I've got a neighbor that lives down the road a ways
His wife holds down a steady job, he don't turn his hand all day
I know that most of you will know the kind I'm talkin' about
The kind that rather than have to work, he'd rather do without

But he's a go getter, a go getter
When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get her

There's a group of men in the court house yard any time that you go by
Playin' checkers and tradin' odds and makin' jokes about their wives
They wait all week for pay day and they hold the money's plenty
And the wife that's worked those long hard hours never gets a penny

But he's a go getter, a go getter
When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get her
Yes he's a go getter, a go getter
When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get her
He's a go getter, a go getter
When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get her
