    Hey !
You need a little rain for the ole tadpole
You need a little rain just to cast your pole
You need a little rain to see a bright rainbow
You need a little rain to let the saw grass grow

Now platypus Zac, he lived in a shack
Deep in the sassafras swamp
Every night by the fireflies light
You could hear his guitar “Chomp”
His steel harp sang from the heart
With a little “sassafras” stomp
As he played his song, till the break of dawn
Just to get the rhythm right…..

   Hey!
You need a little rain for the ole tadpole
You need a little rain just to cast your pole
You need a little rain to see a bright rainbow
You need a little rain to let the saw grass grow

Sultry days when the sun won’t shine
An the alligators “chompin” at this heart of mine
I sing a little song just to ease my soul
About a little boll of cotton and boll weevil….

……….

…..You can’t plant cotton in a crooked row
You can’t plant cotton with the boll weevil
