Yestidity when I awokin
Thot my back was broken
This straw tick on my bed
And duck feather pad for my head

Just wonít git it animore
Headen for the bed store
To git a fanci mat
Pump it full of water
Can you fanci that

I be afloatin
Down that wateri stream
Havin no nightmares
Jus pretti dreams

An instead
Of back bin broke
I be livin
Like citi folk.

Dollar down
Dollar week
Mony well spent
Hope this pad donít leek.
