The Lyrics

I've got a shell for you--
That's the game kind.

Better watch with care what I do.
The pea's lyin'
'neath this shell, lyin'.

So I take my hands an'
I move shells around.
Watch them all carefully,
Because under one the pea is found.

They've got a shell for you--
Another kind,
You'll find.

It is you
They will screw
And then you
Cry, "Boo-hoo!"
Because now,
You're stripped bare;
You've no money. . .
Milked like a cow.

You're bum-steered!

There's no more wealth for you.
More luck next time.
