Raggedy, raggedy are we.
Just as raggedy as raggedy can be.

Just as hungry as hungry can be.
We don't get nothing for our labor.
Hungry, hungry are we.

Homeless!
Homeless, homeless are we.
Just as homeless as homeless can be.
We don't get nothing for our labor.
Homeless, homeless are we.

Landless!
Landless, landless are we.
Just as landless as landless can be.
We don't get nothing for our labor.
Landless, landless are we

Cow-less!
Cow-less, cow-less are we.
Just as cow-less as cow-less can be.
We don't get nothing for our labor.
Cow-less, cow-less are we.

Hog-less!
Hog-less, hog-less are we.
Just as hog-less as hog-less can be.
We don't get nothing for our labor.
Hog-less, hog-less are we.

Raggedy, rag’dy are we:
Just as rag’dy as rag’dy can be.
We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,
So raggedy, rag’dy are we.

So hungry, hungry are we:
Just as hungry as hungry can be.
We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,
So hungry, hungry are we.

So homeless, homeless are we:
Just as homeless as homeless can be.
We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,
So homeless, homeless are we.

So landless, landless are we:
Just as landless as landless can be.
We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,
So landless, landless are we.

So cowless, cowless are we:
Just as cowless as cowless can be.
The planters don’t ‘low us to raise ‘em,
So cowless, cowless are we.

So hogless, hogless are we:
Just as hogless as hogless can be.
The planters don’t ‘low us to raise ‘em,
So hogless, hogless are we.

So cornless, cornless are we:
Just as cornless as cornless can be.
The planters don’t ‘low us to raise it,
So cornless, cornless are we.

So pitiful, pit’ful are we:
Just as pit’ful as pit’ful can be.
We don’t get nothin’ for our labor,
So pitiful, pit’ful are we.
