Leroy Van Dyke - The Auctioneer Lyrics

 

Hey well all right sir here we go there

And what are ya' gonna give for 'em

I have a six hundred dollar down here

Now ten and now twenty-five and now thirty-five

And now there fifty now sixty

Will ya give me sixty now seventy-five

Seventy-five another eighty-five dollars

Oughta buy 'em there

 

There was a boy in Arkansas

Who wouldn't listen to his ma

When she told him that he should go to school

He'd sneak away in the afternoon

Take a little walk and then pretty soon

You'd find him at the local auction barn

 

Well he'd stand and listen carefully

And then pretty soon he began to see

How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly

He said oh my it's do or die

I've got to learn that auction cry

Gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer

 

Twenty-five dollar bid it now thirty dollar thirty

Will you gimmie thirty make it thirty

Bid it on a thirty dollar will you gimmie thirty dollar bid

 

Thirty dollar bid it now thirty-five

Will you gimmie thirty-five

To make it thirty-five to bid it a thirty-five

Who woulda bid it at a thirty-five dollar bid

 

Well as time went on he did his best

And all could see he didn't jest

He practiced calling bids both night and day

His pop would find him behind the barn

Just a working up an awful storm

As he tried to imitate the auctioneer

 

His dad said son we just can't

Stand to have a mediocre man

Selling things at action using our name

I'll send you off to auction school

And then you'll be nobody's fool

You can take your place among the best

 

Thirty-five dollar bid it now forty dollar forty

Will you gimmie forty make it forty

Bid it on a forty dollar will you gimmie forty dollar bid

 

Forty dollar bid it now forty-five

Will you gimmie forty-five

To make it forty-five to bid it a forty-five

Who woulda bid it at a forty-five dollar bid

 

So from that boy who went to school

There grew a man who played it cool

He came back home a full fledged auctioneer

And the people came from miles around

Just to hear him make that rhythmic sound

That fill their hearts with such a happy cheer

 

His fame spread out from shore to shore

He had all he could do and more

Had to buy a plane to get around

Now he's the best in all the land

Let's pause and give that man a hand

He's the best of all the auctioneers

 

Forty-five dollar bid it now fifty dollar fifty

Will you gimmie fifty make it fifty

Bid it on a fifty dollar will you gimmie fifty dollar bid

 

Fifty dollar bid it now fifty-five

Will you gimmie fifty-five

To make it fifty-five to bid it a fifty-five

Sold that hog for a fifty dollar bill

 

Hey well all right sir open the gate

And let 'em out and walk 'em boys

Here we come with lot number 29 in

What'd ya gonna give for 'em

 

I have a twenty-five I oughta get thirty-five

And now a fifty make it fifty bid it along at fifty

Now sixty will ya give me sixty now seventy-five

And now eight-five and now nine-five

 

A hundred and now twenty-five

And now it's at seventy-five

And a two and a three and a four

And a five and a six now seven

Now eight hundred dollars

And a buy 'em there
