Muskrat, Muskrat, wha makes your head so slick?
I've been a-livin' in the water so long, it's a
Wonder I ain't sick, I ain't sick, I ain't sick...

Well, Groundhog, Groundhog, why is your back
So brown?
It's a wonder I don't smother to death from livin'
In the ground, in the ground, in the ground...

Jaybird, Jaybird, why do you fly so high?
I've been eatin them acerns all my life, it's a
Wonder i don't die, I don't die, I don't die...

Now, rooster, rooster, why is your claw so hard?
Iv'e been scratchin' in the barnlot all my life, and it's a
Wonder I ain't tired, I ain't tired, I ain't tired...

Well, tomcat, old tomcat, why is your tail so long?
I been a-cussin' and a-fightin' all my life, it's a
Wonder it ain't gone, it ain't gone, it ain't gone...
