Yonder come-a Willie, he's a-passin' on the hill
He don't dress nice, but tries good to kill

CHORUS:
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
Burma Shave, Burma Shave
I bet I've seen a million roads
Of them little red bow-legged signs up & down the line
Come on, come on & get it, get it

Pappy ain't a smart, he ain't but a-quizzin'
But with one thing he knows how to keep 'em all his

(chorus)
(instrumental)

Way down yonder by the forks of the branch
The old sow whistles & the little pigs dance

(chorus)
(instrumental)

Roses are red, violets are blue
You chase me & I'll catch you

(chorus
