Chubby Checker – Lazy Elsie Molly lyrics

Lazy, lazy Elsie Molly
Put the pack back on your back
Lazy, lazy Elsie Molly
Carry it on down
To the railroad track

There's a girl down
By the railroad tracks
Used to carry coal on her back
Till she met that gentleman Jack
That lazy Elsie Molly

[Repeat chorus]

Elsie Molly's been looking so fine
She won't go to work in the mine
She lays in bed 'til eight or nine
That Lazy Elsie Molly

[Repeat chorus]

Do do do do...
Put the pack
Back on your back

Jack and Elsie's
Been a strutting around
He bought her a wig
And a purple gown

Now she's the
Best dressed miner in town
That Lazy Elsie Molly

[Repeat chorus]

Girl, put the pack
Back on your back

[Repeat chorus 2x]
