"The Dodger" (karaoke)

"The Dodger" (sheet music)


Oh, the candidate’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the candidate’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll meet you and treat you

And ask you for your vote,

But look out, boys,

He’s a dodging for a vote!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.

 

Oh, the lawyer, he’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the lawyer, he’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll plead your case

And claim you for a friend,

But look out, boys,

He is easy for to bend!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.

 

Oh, the preacher, he’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the preacher, he’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll preach you the gospel

And tell you of your crimes,

But look out, boys,

He’s a-dodging for your dimes!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.

 

Oh, the merchant, he’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the merchant, he’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll sell you goods

At double the price,

And when you go to pay him,

You will have to pay him twice!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.

 

Oh, the farmer, he’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the farmer, he’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll plow his cotton;

He’ll hoe his corn;

And he’ll make a living

Just as sure as you’re born!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.

 

Oh, the lover, he’s a dodger,

Yes, a well-known dodger;

Oh, the lover, he’s a dodger,

Yes, and I’m a dodger, too.

He’ll hug you and kiss you

And call you his bride,

But look out, girls,

He’s a-telling you a lie!

Oh, we’re all dodging,

A-dodging, dodging, dodging;

Oh, we’re all dodging

Our way through the world.
