1 Well, I met my sister de other day,
Give her my right han',

she took 'n' scandalize' my name.
Do you call dat a sister?

No! No! you call dat a sister?
No! No! scandalize' my name.

2 Well, I met my brother de other day,

No! No! scandalize' my name.

3 Well, I met my preacher de other day,
Give him my right han',
