(Feat. Wynton Marsalis)

Well
I went upon
A mountain
I looked down
In the sea
I seen the crabs
And the fishes
Doing the beebop beep
'Cause my bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

Chorus:
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

Well
I'm standing
On the corner
With a bucket
In my hand
I'm a-waiting
For a woman
That ain't got
No man
Cause my bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
I can't buy
No beer

(Chorus)

Well
There ain't no use
For me
A-working so hard
When I got
A woman in the boss
Man's yard
'Cause my bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

(Chorus)

Well
Me and my baby
We just bought a Ford
And now
We sit together
On the running board
'Cause my bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
Yeah
My bucket's
Got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

(Chorus)
