David was a young blood
David was a stripling
But he looked like the jungle boy
That was talked about by Kipling
Well, he looked like a jungle boy
And he sang like a bird
But he fought like the devil when his temper got stirred

When David was a'tending sheep for his pa
Somebody hollered, I think it was his ma
She said "Hurry to the field with this little-bitty sack
I want you to take it to your brothers, but hurry right back"
Now David took his lunch box and off he hurried
And there he saw the Israelites looking right worried
When he asked them what the problem was
They pointed to the prairie
There he saw a sight to make an elephant scary

Oh, there he saw Goliath
Champion of Gath
He roared in his anger
Howled in his wrath
Oh, he was stronger than a lion
He was taller than a tree
Little David had to tiptoe
Just to reach up to his knee

"Come on!" said the giant
Raging and striding
"Bring out your strongmen from where ya got 'em hiding
Drag out your champions
From under the bunks
I'll feed 'em to the buzzards
The lizards and the skunks"

Now David heard him bragging
And said, "I declare
That giant's got an awful lot of mouth up there"
So he strolled to the brook
And he picked up a pebble
It was smooth as ice
But hard as a devil

He starts out for the giant
A-dancing on his toes
He was whirling away with his slingshot
He was singing a song like so goes:

"Rock of ages, cleft for me"
Like so
The giant looks at David
And lets out a laugh
He laughs like a tiger
Being sassed by a cat
He laughs like a hyena
Grins from ear to ear
Ba-Ba-Ba-Bangin' on his armor
With his ten-foot spear

He stars (starts) out for David
Bangin' and a-clankin'
He said, "Come here, Junior!
I'm gonna give you a spankin'!"

David took his slingshot, and he swung it 'round his head
Out flew that pebble
And the giant dropped
(He dropped dead) - dead!
You know little David made a good shot
