You know my mama bought a washbo'd
An a brand new tub
My daddy had one old dirty shirt
An they began to rub

They come just to rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin'
They just a-kept on a-rubbin' on the same old thing

Come just to rubbin'
Come just to rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin'
They just a-kept on rubbin' on the same old thing

Well now look-a-here, Big Bill
Don't you be tryin-a play me cheap
If you ain't gonna rub
Son, you got-ta move next week!

You better start to rubbin'
Better come to the rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin'
You just a-keep on rubbin' on the same old thing

(harmonica & Instrumental)

You know I met a little girl
She was all trimmed out in blue
She saw me rubbin'
She started to rubbin', too

An when she come, just to rubbin'
Come just to rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin'
We just a-kept on a-rubbin' on the same old thing

Come just to rubbin'
A-come just to rubbin', now
Come just to rubbin'
We just a-kept on a-rubbin' on the same old thing.

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
