Met the ghost of stephen foster at the hotel paradise
This is what I told him as I gazed into his eyes:
Rooms were made for carpets,
Towers made for spires,
Ships were made for cannonade fire off from inside them

(Chorus):
Gwine to run all night
Gwine to run all day
Camptown ladies never sang all the doo dah day no, no, no
(Back to chorus)

Met the ghost of stephen foster at the hotel paradise
This is what I told him as I gazed into his eyes:
Ships were made for sinking,
Whiskey made for drinking,
If we were made of cellophane, we'd all get stinking drunk quite faster ha, ha, ha

(Chorus):
Gwine to run all night
Gwine to run all day
Camptown ladies never sang all the doo dah day no, no, no
(Back to chorus)
