Verse:
Old Dan Tucker's a fine old man,  Washed his face with in a fryin' pan,
Combed his hair with a waggon wheel,  Died with a tooth ache in his heel.
 
Old Tucker he comes to town,  Swings the ladies 'round and 'round.
Swings one east, and he swings one west,  Swings with the one he loves the best.
 
Old Dan Tucker he comes to town,  Ridin' a billy goat, leadin' a hound,
Hound dog barked and the billy goat jumped,  Threw Old Dan Tucker on a stump.
 
Chorus:
Get out the way,  Old Dan Tucker,  You're too late to get your supper.
Get out the way,  Old Dan Tucker,  You're too late to get your supper.
