Well now my baby's always singin' that chop chop boom
Man I can't stand it, gonna leave here soon
The confounded noise, I can't take it no more
Gonna get my hat and hit the door

Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
I had a talk with my baby just to try and find out
Just what that choppin' noise was all about
My baby wouldn't tell me but this she said
You know it always reminds me of an achin' head

Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
Well now when we go walkin' like two folks should
Just about the time that I am feeling good
She meets a friend she calls a Daisy Mae
They'll get together and you'll hear them say

[Instrumental Interlude]

Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
It's so sad on her mind, on her mind all the time

Chop chop boom
I didn't know the lady would take my place
But that was until she met a cat named Ace
Still I didn't know she was doin' me wrong
'Til they started hummin' that song

Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
Well now my baby's gone
And left me and I think I know why
I'll bet that cat Ace done told her a lie
Now they're goin' on just a-hummin' that tune
And I'm left here with that chop chop boom

Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
Chop chop boom
Chop Chop
