Mr. Rumson went to town
Riding on a pony
Bought a wife and brought her home
And called it matrimony

Mr. Rumson bought a bride
Out in Californee
He'd saved a lot of money
Stayin' drunk and horny

Oh, Susanna, he's happy as can be
For he's got him something
Better than a banjo on his knee

Rumson, he got married today
Married today, married today
Rumson, he got married today
What'll he do tomorrow?

Get the soap and water, whoop-ti-ay
Get the soap and water, whoop-ti-ay
Got a sweet perfumer to dry his humor
It's Ben's wedding day

Wash him down and flip him, whoop-ti-ay
Wash him down and flip him, whoop-ti-ay
He's got a blue eyed wonder to pull him under
It's Ben's wedding

His wedding, his wedding day
Amen
