L     Them Sticker Gitters
      How about Them Sticker Gitters,
      Ain't they neat?
      Gittin' them stickers,
      In they feet.
      Gittin' them goatheads,
      Gittin' them briars,
      Pickin' 'em out with,
      Sticker pickin' pliars.
      Look at Them Sticker Gitters,
      Cain't they cuss?
      Soons get a sticker,
      Raise a mighty huge fuss.
      Them tender-footed Sticker Gitters,
      How they squeal.
      Stickers in they toes,
      Stickers in they heel.
      How to be a Sticker Gitter?
      Don't need a ticket.
      Stick a foot'n the weeds,
      N'let the stickers git it!
