INTRO

Dollar down, mama, dollar every week
Dollar down now, mama, dollar every week
Dollar down now, mama, dollar when we meet

Walk this town all over, hon', before I stop
Walk this town all over, gal, before I stop
First place I went, was a furniture shop

The clerk, he asked me, "Can I wait on you?"
The clerk he asked me, "Can I wait on you?
I think you need something in the line of furniture."

He says, "All right, Bobby, what can it be?"
He says, "All right, Bobby, what can it be?"
I says, "That old bed and rocker, is something, let me see."

I said, "Listen here, furniture man, how you gonna make my note?"
"Hey, hey, furniture man." This what he repeat:
"Just a dollar down, dollar every week."

I started back home, I was walkin' on down the street
I started back home, walkin' on down the street
I met a long brown, sure looked good to me

She said, "Hello, Bobby, Bobby can't you see?"
She said, "Hello, Bobby, Bobby can't you see?"
I says, "A dollar down, mama, dollar every week."

Every Monday morning, somebody knocks on my door
Every Monday mornin', somebody knocks on my door
That old furniture man, tryin' to get what I owe
