Lyrics: Woody Guthrie.
Tune: Woody Guthrie.


Mama, oh Mama, come wash my face,
Wash my face, come wash my face;
Mama, oh Mama, come wash my face,
And make me nice and clean-o.

Daddy, oh, Daddy, come fix my shoe,
Fix my shoe, come fix my shoe;
Daddy, oh Daddy, come fix my shoe,
And polish it nice and clean-o.

Sister, oh Sister, come bathe my back,
Bathe my back, come bathe my back;
Sister, oh Sister, come bathe my back,
And make it nice and clean-o.

Clean-o clean, yes, clean-o clean,
Clean-o clean, yes, clean-o clean;
Scrubbity scrubbity and rubby-dub dubbity,
And make me nice and clean-o.

Brother, oh Brother, come wash my hair,
Wash my hair, come wash my hair;
Brother, oh Brother, come wash my hair,
And make it nice and clean-o.

Granny, oh Granny, come wash my feet,
Wash my feet, come wash my feet;
Granny, oh Granny, come wash my feet,
And make them nice and clean-o.

Sweetie, oh Sweetie, come smell-a me now,
Smell of me now, come smell-a me now;
Sweetie, oh Sweetie, come smell-a me now;
Don’t I smell nice and clean-o?
