    "Boll Weevil" Lyrics

    Ben E. King feat. Brook Benton

    Let me tell ya a story about a boll weevil
    Now, some of you may not know
    But a boll weevil is an insect
    And he's found mostly where cotton grows
    Now, where he comes from, hm, nobody really knows
    But this is the way the story goes

    The farmer said to the boll weevil
    "I see you're on the square"
    Boll weevil said to the farmer
    "Say yep, my whole darn family's here"

    The farmer said to the boll weevil
    "Say, why do you pick my farm"
    The weevil just laughed at the farmer 'n' said
    "We ain't gonna do ya much harm"
    Ho-o-o-o-o,-o-o-o, -o-o-o, o-o-ome"

    And the boll weevil spotted a lightning bug.
    He said "Hey, I'd like to make a trade with you
    But, ya see if I was a lightning bug
    I'd search the whole night through"

    And the boll weevil called the farmer, 'n' he said
    "Ya better sell your old machines
    'Cause when I'm through with your cotton
    Heh, you can't even buy gasoline
    "Stake me a home, gotta have a home

    And the boll weevil said to the farmer, said " Farmer
    I'd like to wish you well"
    Farmer said to the boll weevil
    "Yeah, an' I wish that you were in home
    Lookin' for a home
    (Ahh, you have a home all right, you have a home
    (A real hot home, ahhh
