OH, I GOT A GAL NAMED CROSS-EYED SUE
HER EYES ARE RED AND HER LIPS ARE BLUE
SHE HAS DIMPLED HAIR AND CURLEY CHEEKS
HER FALSE TEETH RATTLE AND BACKSIDE KLINKS.

HER OLD MAN'S A SIGHT TO SEE
HE'S DRUNK BOTH NIGHT AND DAY
HE FEEDS HIS HORSES COLD FLAP JACKS
AND HE FEEDS HIS KIDS ON HAY.

CROSS-EYED SUE, SHE WEARS A SHOE
THAT BUTTONS UP THE BACK
HER FEET'S TOO BIG FOR STOCKINGS
SO SHE WEARS A GUNNY SACK.

CROSS-EYED SUE AND A KANGAROO
ARE VERY MUCH ALIKE
THE KANGAROO HOPS AROUND ALL DAY
AND SUE SHE HOPS ALL NIGHT.
