You may talk about the latest, the latest of your own
These boll weevils, they'll rob you of your home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home

The first time I seen a boll weevil
He was sitting on the stairs
The next time I seen a boll weevil
He had his whole family there
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home

The farmer, he took the boll weevil and put him on the ice
The boll weevil said to the farmer
"You treat me mighty nice"
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
All right, they are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home

I said, "If anybody asks you people who sang you this song
You tell 'em it was Jackie White
He's done been here and gone"
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
All right, they are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
They are looking for a home
