Big Dog Mister

There's my field, there's my cattle, there's my men.



Fieldhands

He want his ham hocks hot

And his lemonade cold.

Don't want to hear no lip,

Just do what you told.

Pluck them chickens,

Scrub them pots and pans.

You gonna churn that butter

'Til it cramp your hands.

If you think hard work

Been doggin' you before . . .

Hunh!

Get ready for the big dog!

Mister

This my house.

Milk that cow. To the schoolhouse

Fields to plow. College degree.

Ditch to dig. Tennessee.

Fetch them eggs, won't be time

Pitch that hay. For a garden.

Don't stray. Gonna sing.

Pull the turnips, won't be time

Hose the greens, for my readin'.

Fieldhands

He like his bath real hot,

Like it 'bout to boil.

You got to rub his feet

With some liniment oil.

Shave his whiskers,

Hope it's understood

That you best not cut him,

Or he beat you good.

If you think hard work been doggin' you before,

Get ready for the big dog! Hunh!
