Rag Mama Rag, can't believe its true.
Rag Mama Rag, what did you do?
Crawled up to the railroad track, let the four nine-teen scratch my back.

Shag mama shag now

What's come over you, Rag Mama Rag, I'm a
Pulling out your gag.
Gonna turn you lose like an old caboose, Got a tail
I need a drag.
I ask about your | turtle, and
You ask about the weather, Well, I can't jump the | hurdle and we
Can't get together.
We could be relaxing
In my sleeping bag, But All you want to do for me mama is a
Rag Mama Rag.
There's no-where to go,
Rag Mama Rag.
Come on re sin up the bow.
Rag Mama Rag, where do ya roam?
Rag Mama Rag, bring your skinny little body right home.

Its dog eat dog and cat eat mouse, you can
Rag Mama Rag all over my house.
Hail stones beating on the roof, the bourbon is a hundred proof, its
You and me and the telephone our destiny is quite well known.
We don't need to sit and brag.
All we gotta do is Rag
Mama Rag Rag Mama Rag.
Where do you roam? Rag Mama Rag, bring your
Skinny little body back
