Coon On The Moon

Howlin' Wolf

When I all grown out, a little boy
Stayed way down south
Had to wear second-handed clothes
Live out back-a the big house

Things have changed
Yes, we on the moon, now
They wouldn't let us play together
Now, we could go to no city school, now

We used to pick the cotton
Til we got too old
Tell me, who was the first man
Ta go to the North Pole?

Things have changed
Yes, we on the moon, now
We used to wear boots, ev'ry day
Now we wearin' bran' new shoes

(Harmonica & instrumental)

We plowed the mule
That lived out back-a the hut
Tell me who was the first man
Made butter out of a peanut?

Things have changed
Ooh, we on the moon, now
They used to wouldn't let us play together
Now, we can go to most any school, now

You know they call us, 'coon'
Say we didn't have no sense
You gon' wake up one mornin'
An the ol' 'coon' will be your president

Things have changed
Ooh, we on the moon, now
You gon' wake up one mornin'
An' it'll be a "coon" a-settin' on the moon.
