I'm going down south to Alabam,
Lookin' for a man by the name of Sam,
He's got good hot dog,
Oh, he's got good hot dog,
Oh, he's got good hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

You can drink your coffee, eat your jellyroll,
But if you taste Sam's hot dog, it will satisfy your soul,
'Cause he's got good hot dog,
Oh, he's got good hot dog,
Oh, he's got good hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

Sam makes a-plenty of money and spends it fast,
Women don't do nothin' but sit on their yas, yas, yas,
And wait for Sam's hot dog,
Oh, they wait for Sam's hot dog,
Oh, they wait for Sam's hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

Spoken: Yes, he's got good hot dog! I don't mean a Wienee!

Sam got the best hot dog in this town,
I like the way he serves it; he goes 'round and 'round,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

When you get enough hot dog, stop and rest awhile,
If you want any more, Sam will serve you with a smile,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Baby, with his hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

He's at my house last night and brought me one,
I'm wild about his hot dog, the son of a gun,
I'm wild about his hot dog,
I'm wild about his hot dog,
Oh, I'm wild about his hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.

Late last night 'bout half past twelve,
Women down at Sam's, they was raisin' hell,
Just about his hot dog,
Just about his hot dog,
Just about his hot dog,
Honey, in his hot dog stand.
