You get a line and I'll get a pole
Now honey
You get a line and I'll get a pole
Babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
We'll go down to the crawdad hole
Honey, baby, mine

Yonder come a man with a sack on his back
Now honey
Yonder come a man with a sack on his back
Oh babe
Yonder come a man with a sack on his back
He's got him all the crawdads he can pack
Honey, baby, mine

Man fell down and he broke that sack
Honey
Man fell down and he broke that sack
Oh babe
Man fell down and he broke that sack
You'd better see them crawdads goin' back
Honey, baby, mine

What you gonna do when the pond goes dry
Now honey
What you gonna do when the pond goes dry
Oh babe
What you gonna do when the pond goes dry
I'm gonna stand on the bank
And watch the crawdads die
Honey, baby, mine

Sat on the pond 'til my feet got cold
Now honey
Sat on the pond 'til my feet got cold
Babe
Sat on the pond 'til my feet got cold
I was lookin' right down that crawdad's hole
Honey, baby, mine
