    Lots of folks back east they say
    Leaving home most every day
    Beating the hot old dusty way
    To the California line
    'Cross the desert sands they roll
    Getting out of that Old Dust Bowl
    Think they're coming to a sugar bowl
    But here's what they find
    Police at the port of entry say
    You're number fourteen thousand for to day

    Hey, if you ain't got the Do Re Mi, boy
    If you ain't got the Do Re Mi
    Well, you better go back to beautiful Texas
    Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee
    California is the garden of Eden
    It's a paradise to live in or see
    But believe it or not
    You won't find it so hot
    If you ain't got the Do Re Mi

    You want to buy a home or a farm
    That can't do nobody harm
    Take your vacation by the mountains or sea
    Don't swap your old cow for a car
    You better stay right where you are
    Better take this little tip from me
    Well, I look through the want ads every day
    The headlines in the papers always say
