Fly's in the buttermilk, Shoo, fly, shoo,
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou.
Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou.
Lou, Lou, skip to my Lou.
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

Cows in the cornfield, What'll I do?
Cows in the cornfield, What'll I do?
Cows in the cornfield, What'll I do?
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'

Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

I’ll get another one, prettier than you.
I’ll get another one, prettier than you.
I’ll get another one, prettier than you.
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

Little red wagon, painted blue.
Little red wagon, painted blue.
Little red wagon, painted blue.
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

Flies in the buttermilk, two by two
Flies in the buttermilk, two by two
Flies in the buttermilk, two by two
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

Flies in the sugar bowl, shoo shoo shoo!
Flies in the sugar bowl, shoo shoo shoo!
Flies in the sugar bowl, shoo shoo shoo!
Skip to my Lou, my darling.

Going to Texas, two by two
Going to Texas, two by two
Going to Texas, two by two
Skip to my Lou, my darling.
