Well, I'm that walkin' ground hog
Mama, an I walks through 'round in my den
Now, I'm that walkin' ground hog
Mama, an I walks around in my den
Now, an if I come out 'n see my shadow
John, I believe I'll go back in

Now, an I want some feedin' mama, you hear
So I can hear her high sound
If you don't feed me, baby
I believe I'll go back in the ground

Because I'm that walkin' ground hog
Mama an I walks through 'round in my den
Now, if I come out 'n see my shadow
You say you don't love me
I believe I'll go back in

Now, an I wanna hear some swingin' music
I wanna hear a Fats Waller sound, yeah
Now, if I start to Jitterbuggin'
I will leave my hole down in the ground

Because I'm just a-walkin' groundhog
Man, an I walks through 'round in my den
Now, if I come out and see my shadow
My woman don't love me
I believe I'll go back in



(harmonica & instrumental)

Ah, you know, I'm goin' walk a while'd

Now, an I need some pettin', baby
Baby, you know what I mean
Now, if a-you don't pet me, baby
I believe I'll go back down in New Orleans

Because I'm that walkin' groundhog
Night I walks around in my den
Now, if I come out and see my shadow
My woman don't love me
Yeah, an' I believe I'll go back in.
