LII' Them Sand Pickers
How about Them Sand Pickers,
Ain't they grand?
Sittin' on their haunches,
Pickin' in the sand.
Pickin' in the wet sand,
Pickin' in the dry.
Pickin' it fiercely,
Look at it fly!
Look at Them Sand Pickers,
Ain't they slick?
Some use they fingers,
Some use a stick.
Them seashore Sand Pickers,
Ain't they fine?
Sittin' in the sand,
Pickin' up time.
How to be a Sand Picker?
Don't need a ticket.
Find a bunch of sand,
Skootch down and pick it!
