Well, they took old Georgie right up to the light,
The man at the . . .
. . . because he was told
. . .

Old Elgin returned in a day or two,
The buggy load of a different crew
Run around the house and they peeped through the cracks,
Here's where we got him sleeping at your back.

Sue, old Sue, I'll warn you in time.
If you don’t leave here, I’ll bust your rind,
I’ll whip George again, and if that don’t do,
. . . and Calvin, too.

Well, they kicked down the door and they went in the shack,
There lay old George at Susan's back.
Well, the first got George, and then he got Sue,
. . . that couple and . . . new.

Old Elgin helt his buggy whip,
While Elgin jumped on with a terrapin's grip,,
. . . with his buggy whip.
