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
"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
Ahh you have a home all right
You have a home
A real hot home ahhh
