Bob Wills Roly Poly Lyrics

Roly Poly, eatin' corn and taters

Hungry every minute of the day

Roly poly, gnawin' on a bisquit

Long as he can chew it it's ok

He can eat an aple pie

And never bat an eye

He likes everything from soup to hay

Roly Poly, daddy's little fatty

Bet he's gonna be a man someday


Roly Poly, scrambled eggs for breakfast

Bread and jelly 20 times a day

Roly Poly, eats a hearty dinner

It takes lots of strength to run and play

Pulls up weeds and does the chores

Runs both ways top all the stores

He works up an appitite that way

Roly Poly, daddy's little fatty

Bet he's gonna be a man someday
