Uncle Joe's got a horse flies through the field;
Fox rides on his tail like an automobile!
Uncle Joe, good old Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe took us out to the market square,
And saw a whore, and start carousing right there!
Uncle Joe, sweet Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe is a man just full of vim,
Ain't no one gal can satisfy him.
Uncle Joe, sweet Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe take a bath once every Fall,
Can't wash all over 'cause the tub's too small!
Uncle Joe, sweet old Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe sit down, what you got on your mind?
"I ain't had no lovin' in a long, long time."
Uncle Joe, sweet Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe went to call on Betty Bone,
He was too much man, so she sent him on home.
Uncle Joe, good old Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe sells cotton, bale by bale,
And he'll buy anything that he sees for sale.
Uncle Joe, sweet Uncle Joe!

Uncle Joe's no fool; he knows everything;
All the ladies said Joe sure can shake that thing!
Uncle Joe, sweet Uncle Joe!
