I know a gal named Sadie Ward,
She's always exercises her vocal cords.
She wants to be a yodeler like Helen Kane,
But she always sings the same old strain;
Morning, night and noon,
You could hear her sing this tune:

She goes, Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Nothin' but the same old song.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

She slipped down off of her stoop,
And like to broke her boop-poop-a-doop.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Nothin' but the same old song.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

I saw her walkin' on her crutch.
The doctor said she done boop-boop-e-dooped too much.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Nothin' but the same old song.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

She got married to old George Quinn
They boop-boop-booped 'til they got fat twins. [?]
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

[Spoken:]
Who's that playin' that guitar?
Well, if that don't sound like Lonnie Johnson, glory!
Ah, play it, babe!

She goes, Boop! Boop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Nothin' but the same old song.
She goes, Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!

Now, she want to boop-boop-e-doop to some song,
But he says she could boop-boop too doggone long.
Boop-doop-e-doop!
Boop-doop-e-doop!
She yodels it all day long!
