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.
