Pat do this, Pat do that
Without our shoes, without our hat
Nothing in the world but an old straw hat
Workin' on the railroad

Rug shugaroo shug shugaroo
Sugar in the cream shaw how do you do
Just on the rail road folly follaroo
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo

1842
I didn't know what i should do
Sailed across the ocean blue
Work all on the railroad

Rug shugaroo shug shugaroo
Sugar in the cream shaw how do you do
Just on the rail road folly follaroo
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo

1843
I set out across the sea
Didn't expect to see poor me
Working on the railroad

Rug shugaroo shug shugaroo
Sugar in the cream shaw how do you do
Just on the rail road folly follaroo
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo

1844
I landed on the foreign shore
Didn't expect to see me more
Working on the railroad

Rug shugaroo shug shugaroo
Sugar in the cream shaw how do you do
Just on the rail road folly follaroo
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo

Railroad comes, we'll take a ride
Here we go side by side
Here we go side by side
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo

Rug shugaroo shug shugaroo
Sugar in the cream shaw how do you do
Just on the rail road folly follaroo
Johnny comes pickin' on the banjo
