You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey
You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
We'll go down to the crawdad hole
Honey, baby of mine.

Yonder come a man with a sack on his back, honey (honey)
Yonder come a man with a sack on his back, babe (babe)
Yonder come a man with a sack on his back
Got all the crawdads in his sack
(Honey, baby of mine.)

The man feel down and he burst his bag, honey (honey)
The man feel down and he burst his bag, babe (babe)
The man feel down and he burst his bag
Along came the crawdads back in the bag?
(Honey, baby of mine.)

You get, I'll get, honey
You get, I'll get, babe
You get, I'll get
We'll get
(Honey, baby of mine.)

--- Instrumental ---

What you goin' do when the sun goes dry, honey (honey)?
What you goin' do when the sun goes dry, babe (babe)
What you goin' do when the sun goes dry
Sit on the back and watch the crawdads die
(Honey, baby of mine.)

You get, I'll get, honey
You get, I'll get, babe
You get, I'll get
We'll get
(Honey, baby of mine.)

You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey
You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
We'll go down to the crawdad hole.
(Honey, baby of mine...)
