LITTLE EEEFIN' ANNIE
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe...

(Little Eeefin' Annie
She is mine all mine
Little Eeefin' Annie
Has a terrible time
It don't make no difference
What she tries to say
When Little Eeefin' Annie talk
It always come out this way)

Well, I got a girl named Annie
And she's mine all mine
But when she gets excited
She has an awful time
'Cause when I call her on the phone
And ask her for a date
Before I get an answer
I always have to wait, 'cause she goes:
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife
Pick me up at eight!

Well, I took Annie ridin'
And we went to the park
We ended up in Lovers Lane
Sittin' in the dark
I asked Annie for a kiss
As I looked in her eyes
And by the time she answered
I'd already kissed her twice, 'cause she went:
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife
Sure was nice!

I took her to a restaurant
Thought I'd give her a treat
Then the waiter came and asked
What we'd like to eat
I had to order for both of us
But then I thought I'd die
When the waiter asked her what
Dessert she'd like to try, 'cause she said:
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife
Gimme piece o' pie!

They used to laugh at Annie
Because she eeefed that way
It took at least an hour
To hear what she had to say
But things aren't what they used to be
Nobody's laughin' now
'Cause everybody's Eeefin'
And Annie showed us how, we all go:
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe
Whoo, Eeef!
Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe, Eeef, Ife, Eeef, Oofe
Come on, Eeef!

UNCLE EEEF

(On the banks of the Cumberland River
The hanging tree stood high
And there in grief was Uncle Eeef
He was soon to die
The people had come from miles around
Their last respects to show
And everyone from the hangman down
Hated to see him go
Fear and panic filled his eyes
As the final time drew near
Then he chanted to this pleading chant
That everyone could hear)

Eeef love beef, Eeef love liver
Eeef don't wanna die
On the Cumberland River
Eeef love man, Eeef love chillun
Eeef love beef and watermelon
Eeef love rice cooked with liver
But Eeef don't wanna die
On the Cumberland River

The crowd all heard him chanting
As they started joining in
To give him strength and courage
To face the final end

Eeef love man, Eeef love chillun
Eeef love beef and watermelon
Eeef love rice cooked with liver
But Eeef don't wanna die
On the Cumberland River
