Z     Them Doodle Dashers
      How about Them Doodle Dashers,
      Ain't they jewels?
      Jumpin' outta bushes,
      Wavin' they tools.
      Jumpin' outta palm trees,
      Jumpin' outta shrubs,
      Leapin' outta flowerbeds,
      Wavin' they nubs.
      Look at Them Doodle Dashers,
      Ain't they queer?
      Flaggin' they tallywacker,
      Then disappear.
      Them ever lovin' Doddle Dashers,
      Ain't they pearls?
      Wavin' they doodle-nobs,
      At them girls.
      How to be a doodle dasher?
      Don't need a ticket.
      Gitchy dandy doodle handy,
      Jump from a thicket!
