Bo Diddley just buy his baby diamond ring
If that diamond ring don't shine
He gonna take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see
He'd better not take the ring a-from me

Bo Diddley caught a nanny goat
To make his pretty baby a Sunday coat
Bo Diddley caught a bear cat
To make his pretty baby a Sunday hat

Mojo come to my house wi' black cat bone
A-take my baby away from home
Up in that fo' door a-where you been?
Up yo' house and gone again

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley have you heard?
My pretty baby says she wants a bird.
