Little boy under the shade
Come come run here to me
I will pay you a quarter
If you be my water boy

Mister you know it ain't no fun
Working out in the hot sun
Pay me a half a dollar
Then I'd be your water boy

Lil' boy sure sounds funny
You don't wanna make no money
I can go down to the corner
And get me a dozen water boys

Mister if you think its funny
Don't wanna pay no money
Go on down to the corner
Get you a dozen water boys

(Water Boy)
Can't you hear them calling
(Water Boy)
Yeah I do but you keep stalling
(Water Boy)
Say little boy you better hurry
Getting water to the men is your worry

Fifteen cents and a quarter
That's all I'm gonna offer
That will make you have forty
Now will you be my water boy

Fifteen cents and a quarter
That ain't what I asked for
But you gotta bargain
So I'll be your water boy

(Water Boy)
Can't you hear them calling
(Water Boy)
Ah ha but you keep stalling
(Water Boy)
Hey little boy you better hurry
Getting water to the men is your worry

Fifteen cents and a quarter
That's all I'm gonna offer
That will make you have forty
Now will you be my water boy

Fifteen cents and a quarter
That ain't what I asked for
But you gotta bargain
So I'll be your water boy

He will be our water boy
I will be your water boy
He will be our water boy
I will be your water boy

Little boy you better hurry
