Sam Jones done snagged his britches
Now he's walkin' round here in stitches
He always pal'ed 'round with his vipers
'Til they brought him down to his diapers
Hmm! Old Sam is beat down to his socks!

Like the chicks say Sam just twitches
He was a viper 'til he tore his britches
Played the numbers 'til his clothes was gone
Poor Sam's all ragged and torn
The chicks beat Sam down to the bricks!
