Oh, but what this smell like gravy?
An' I would like to know
What this smell like gravy?
Now, why don't ya tell me so?

Well, I'm not best
Not best in town
But I'll be the best
Until the best come around
A-what's this smell, like gravy?
Now, I would like to know

(harmonica & guitar)

Oh, but what this smell like gravy?
Now, I would like to know
'Cause what's this smell like gravy
Now, why don't ya tell me so?

Well, I've heard a lot of talk
About your candy shop
I'd like to try yo' lollipop
What's this smell like gravy?
Now, I would like to know

(harmonica & guitar)

Oh, what this smell like gravy, darlin'?
I would like to know
Oh, but what this smell like gravy, darlin'
Now, why don't you tell me so?

Well, I'm not best
Not best in town
But I'll be the best
Until the best come around
A-what's this smell, like gravy?
Now, I would like to know

(harmonica & guitar)

Lee-da-lee-da-lee-da

What's this smell like gravy?
Now, I would like to know

Whoa-ho, smell like gravy
Now, why don't ya tell me so?

Well, I'm not best
Not best in town
But I'll be the best
Until the best come around
A-what's this smell, like gravy?
Now, I would like to know

(harmonica & guitar to end)
