    Look-a look-a yonder (3x)
    Well the sun done gone

    The captain can't hold her (3x)
    The way I do now

    Ada got a gold mine (3x)
    Way above her knees

    The shiv (?) is golden (3x)
    Above her knees

    Look-a look-a yonder (3x)
    Well the sun done gone

    Wohoh, Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Black Betty had a baby, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Damn thing was crazy, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Wohoh, Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Oh, Betty Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Black Betty had a baby, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Damn thing was crazy, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Black Betty didn't mind, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Damn thing was blind, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Wohoh, Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Black Betty, Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)
    Jump steady Black Betty, bam-e-lam (2x)

    That Monday, I was arrested
    Tuesday, I locked up in jail
    Wednesday baby, my trial's tested
    On Thursday, nobody could blow my bail

    Yes, I'm almost done (3x)
    And I ain't gonna yell against no bells

    On Monday, baby I went a-walking
    Tuesday, I … asked to go
    On Wednesday I sat down a-talking
    On Thursday she hock all a my clothes

    Yes, I'm almost done (3x)
    And I ain't gonna … no more
