Driva man he made a life
But the mami ain’t his wife
Chottin cotton don’t be slow
Betta finish out ya row
Keep a movin’ wit dat plow
Driva man ‘ll show ya how

Get to work and root dat stump
Drive man ‘ll make ya jump
Betta make yo hammer ring
Driva man ‘ll start to swing
Ain’t but two things on my mind
Driva man and quittin time

Driva man dat kinda boss
Ride a man and lead a horse
When his cat o’ nine tail fly
You be happy just to die
Run away and you’ll be found
By his big ‘ol red bone hound

Pate-roller ya bring ya back
Make ya sorry you is black
Driva man he made a life
But da mami ain’t his wife
Ain’t but two things on my mind
Drive man and quittin time
