"Raggedy, Raggedy" (karaoke)

"Raggedy, Raggedy" (sheet music)


Raggedy, rag’dy are we:

Just as rag’dy as rag’dy can be.

We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,

So raggedy, rag’dy are we.

 

So hungry, hungry are we:

Just as hungry as hungry can be.

We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,

So hungry, hungry are we.

 

So homeless, homeless are we:

Just as homeless as homeless can be.

We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,

So homeless, homeless are we.

 

So landless, landless are we:

Just as landless as landless can be.

We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,

So landless, landless are we.

 

So cowless, cowless are we:

Just as cowless as cowless can be.

The planters don’t ‘low us to raise ‘em,

So cowless, cowless are we.

 

So hogless, hogless are we:

Just as hogless as hogless can be.

The planters don’t ‘low us to raise ‘em,

So hogless, hogless are we.

 

So cornless, cornless are we:

Just as cornless as cornless can be.

The planters don’t ‘low us to raise it,

So cornless, cornless are we.

 

So pitiful, pit’ful are we:

Just as pit’ful as pit’ful can be.

We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,

So pitiful, pit’ful are we.
