Dave Matthews Band – Watermelon Song lyrics

Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good lord said
Summer chains going to come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

See that watermelon
Smiling through the fence
I wish that watermelon it was mine
Sometimes I think that old folks
Ain't got a little sense
When they leave that watermelon on the vine
Well apples are sweet and peaches are good
Rabbits so very very fine
But give me oh give me
Oh how I wish you would
Some of that watermelon smiling on the vine
