Lyrics…

Well, good morning, Captain!
Well, good morning to you.
Do you need another mule skinner
Down on your new mud run?
Ha, ha, hip, ee, ee

Well, I’m an old mule skinner,
From down Kentucky way,
And I can make any mule listen,
Or I won’t accept your pay.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee, ha, ha,
Well hey, hey.

Little water boy, come here boy,
Bring that water bucket around
Ha, ha, ha,
If you don’t like your job
Water boy, put that bucket down
Ha, ha, ha, ee, ee, ha, ha, ha

Well, I’m an old mule skinner,
From down Kentucky way,
And I can make any mule listen,
Or I won’t accept your pay.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee, ha, ha,
Well hey, hey.
