You get a line, I’ll get a pole, honey
You get a line, I’ll get a pole, babe
You get a line, I’ll get a pole
We’ll go down to the crawdad hole
Honey, sugar baby mine

Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Honey,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, Babe,
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back,
Packin' all the crawdads he can pack,
Honey, sugar baby mine

The man fell down and he broke that sack, Honey,
The man fell down and he broke that sack, Babe,
The man fell down and he broke that sack,
See those crawdads backing back,
Honey, sugar baby mine

Hurry up, babe, you slept too late, honey
Hurry up, babe, you slept too late, babe
Hurry up, honey, you slept too late
Crawdad man done passed your gate
Honey, sugar baby mine

Sell your crawdads three for a dime, honey
Sell your crawdads three for a dime, babe
Sell your crawdads three for a dime
Your crawdads ain’t good as mine
Honey, sugar baby mine

What’re ya gonna do when the lake goes dry, honey
What’re ya gonna do when the lake goes dry, babe
What’re ya gonna do when the lake goes dry
Sit on the bank, watch the crawdads die
Honey, sugar baby mine

I heard the duck say to the drake, honey
I heard the duck say to the drake, babe
Heard the duck say to the drake
Ain’t no crawdads in this lake
Honey,i sugar baby mine

There’s a little bitty sailor nine days old, honey
Little bitty baby nine days old, sweet thing
Little bitty baby nine days old,
Stuck his finger in the crawdad hole
Honey, sugar baby mine
