Sara:
I got peaches in my pantry,
Apples hanging on my shelf,
I got peaches in my pantry,
Apples hanging on my shelf,
I'm getting doggone tired of sleeping by myself!

Clarence:
Sara, Sara,
I don't want no one but you.
Sara:
Just a little late, brother, just a little late.
Clarence:
Sara, Sara,
I don't love no one but you.
Sara:
Mighty long time finding out.
Clarence:
Take me back, sweet mama,
'Cause papa knows just what to do.
Sara:
I'm gonna see, I'm gonna see.

I'm gonna take you back,
But your troubles have just begun;
I'm gonna take you back,
But your troubles have just begun;
'Cause you got to treat me different from what you have ever done!

Clarence:
Now, when I first met you, Sara,
You didn't have no hair at all!
Sara:
What? What you talkin' about, now? You talkin' 'bout me?
Clarence:
When I first met you, Sara,
You didn't hve no hair at all!
Sara:
All right, I'll get even with you! I'll get even with you!
Clarence:
And if you put me out, Sara,
I'll take my wig and let your head go bald!
Sara:
Just for that, just for that, just listen here what I've got to tell you;
Smoke this in your pipe!

I don't want you, Clarence,
So don't act like you are green!
Clarence:
Who's acting like they're green?
Sara:
Now, I don't want you, Clarence,
So don't act like you are green!
Clarence:
Nothin' green about sweet papa!
Sara:
I'm gonna show you a brand of shimmy,
That you ain't never seen!
Clarence:
Is that a shimmy? Well, you a liar!
