L     Them Duck Pluckers
How about Them Duck Pluckers,
Ain't they schmucks?
Pluckin' them feathers,
Offa them ducks.
Pluckin' them mallards,
Pluckin' them coots,
Pluckin' they duck-hairs,
Out by the roots.
Look at Them Duck Pluckers,
Ain't they thiefs?
Some use tweezers,
Some use teefs.
Them feather filchin' Duck Pluckers,
Hidin' in the sticks,
Buggin' them plucky-ducks,
Gettin' they kicks.
How to be a Duck Plucker?
No wayda duck it.
Rustle up a duck,
Shoo-boy! Jist pluck it!
