Uncle Earl Raise a Ruckus Lyrics

sponsored links


Well, my old missus said to me,

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight,

When she died, gonna set me free

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight

Oh, come on children, come along,

While the moon is shining bright,

Get on the boat,

Down the river float,

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Well there ain't no use in me working so hard

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight,

When I've got a woman in the rich folks' yard

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Oh, come on children, come along,

While the moon is shining bright,

Get on the boat,

Down the river float,

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Well, every evening about half past eight

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight,

I'll hang my bucket on the rich folks' gate

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Oh, come on children, come along,

While the moon is shining bright,

Get on the boat,

Down the river float,

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Well she brings me chicken and she brings me pie

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight,

I eat some of everything the rich folks buy

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight


Oh, come on children, come along,

While the moon is shining bright,

Get on the boat,

Down the river float,

Gonna raise a ruckus tonight.


(Repeat)
