Care nothing for your daughter,
Much less for yourself.
I'll bet you five dollars
We'll better ourselves.
We don't want no lodging here, oh here,
We don't want no lodging here.

(Dr. Wolf: "Now, just put the first part down.")

Hog rovers, hog rovers, hog rovers we are,
A-courting your daughter,
So rare and so fair.
Can we get lodging here, oh here?
Can we get lodging here?

(Dr. Wolf: "Now tell how you play it."
Mrs. Barnes: "I can't tell you how you play it.")
