Lyrics WELL,
IF I DON'T LOVE YOU
BABY,
GRITS AIN'T GROCERIES,
EGGS AIN'T POULTRY,
AND MONA LISA
WAS A MAN.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD
I'D RATHER BE A FLY,
I'LL LIGHT ON MY BABY
AND STAY WITH HER
'TILL I DIE.
WITH A TOOTHPICK
IN MY HAND,
I'D DIG
A TEN FOOT DITCH,
AND RUN
THROUGH THE JUNGLE
FIGHTIN' LIONS
WITH A SWITCH.

'CAUSE YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
YES, YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
WELL,
IF I DON'T LOVE YOU
BABY,
GRITS AIN'T GROCERIES,
EGGS AIN'T POULTRY,
AND MONA LISA
WAS A MAN.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD
I GOT BLISTERS
ON MY FEET,
TRYIN' TO FIND
MY BABY
AND BRING HER HOME
WITH ME.
YOU BETTER
RUN INTO ME BABY
AND BE CONVINCED,
IF YOU
DON'T RUN INTO ME,
WOMAN,
YOU AIN'T GOT
NO SENSE.

'CAUSE YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
WELL, YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
WELL, IF I DON'T LOVE YOU
BABY,
GRITS AIN'T GROCERIES,
EGGS AIN'T POULTRY,
AND MONA LISA
WAS A MAN.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD,
I NEVER WILL FORGET,
LOST ALL MY MONEY,
MY WOMAN AND MY PET.
I GOT TO HAVE YOU BABY,
SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS,
GIVE UP
ALL MY GOODTIME GIRLS
AND BE SET
FOR HAPPINESS.

'CAUSE YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
WELL, YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
WELL, YOU KNOW
I WANT YOU BABY,
YES, YOUR SMILING FACE
IS MY HEAVEN IN LIFE.

WELL, YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU, BABY,
YES, YOU KNOW
I LOVE YOU BABY,
OOH-OOH,
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU,
BABY,
YEAH,
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
BABY.

WELL,
IF I DON'T LOVE YOU
BABY,
GRITS AIN'T GROCERIES,
EGGS AIN'T POULTRY,
AND MONA LISA
WAS A MAN.

Lyrics YOU BETTER
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE,
YOU BETTER
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE.
I WILL TELL YOU,
BIG BAD BULLDOG,
YOU BETTER
LEAVE HER ALONE.

MISTER DOG
I'M GONNA HIT YOU
ON THE TOP
OF YOUR HEAD,
'CAUSE THAT GAL'S
GONNA MISS YOU
AND YOU'LL WISH
THAT YOU WERE DEAD,
IF YOU DON'T
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE.
YES I LOVE
MY LITTLE KITTEN
LIKE ALL YOU
HOUND DOGS
LOVE YOUR BONE.

DON'T YOU KNOW,
MY KITTEN ALONE,
DON'T YOU KNOW,
MY KITTEN IS AFRAID.
SO YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
ABOVE HER
'CAUSE I'M LOVING HER
ALONE.

YES I LOVE
MY LITTLE KITTEN
LIKE ALL YOU
HOUND DOGS
LOVE YOUR BONE.

Lyrics HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

SOMEHOW I LOST MY MAN,
PLEASE HELP ME FIND HIM
IF YOU CAN.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

LIKE JACK AND JILL,
HAPPY ON A HILL,
HE CAME TO TOWN
JUST LOOKING
FOR A DREAM
NOW WHERE DID HE GO?
IS THERE ANYONE HERE
WHO WOULD KNOW?

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST
WHO HAS LOST EVERYTHING,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL
FIND A WEDDING RING,
OH WHAT HAPPINESS
IT CAN BRING.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

OH, I'M LOST
IN THIS GREAT BIG CITY,
WON'T SOMEBODY HERE
HAVE A LITTLE PITY?
SOMEBODY TAKE MY HAND,
HELP ME FIND MY MAN.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.
