The Boll Weevil Song Lyrics

The Boll Weevil Song (象鼻虫之歌) - Brook Benton

Let me tell ya a story about a boll weevil

 

Now some of you may not know

 

But a boll weevil is an insect

 

And he's found mostly

Where cotton grows

 

Now where he comes from hm

 

Nobody really knows

 

But this is the way the story goes

 

The farmer said to the boll weevil

 

"I see you're on the square"

 

Boll weevil said to the farmer

 

"Say yep my whole darn family's here"

 

We gotta have a home gotta have a home

 

The farmer said to the boll weevil

 

"Say why do you pick my farm"

 

The weevil just laughed

At the farmer 'n' said

 

"We ain't gonna do ya much harm"

We looking have a home

 

And the boll weevil spotted a lightning bug

 

He said "Hey I'd like to

Make a trade with you

 

But ya see if I was a lightning bug

 

I'd search the whole night through"

 

Seatch at a home I have be every a home

 

And the boll weevil called the farmer

'N' he said

"Ya better sell your old machines

 

'Cause when I'm through with your cotton

 

Heh you can't even buy gasoline

"Stake me a home gotta have a home

 

And the boll weevil said to the farmer

 

Said " Farmer

I'd like to wish you well"

 

Farmer said to the boll weevil

 

"Yeah an' I wish that you were in

 

Lookin' for a home

 

Lookin' for a home

 

Ahh you have a home all right

 

You have a home

 

A real hot home ahhh
