"Cut Across Shorty" as written by Marijohn Wilkin and Wayne P. Walker....
Now a country boy named shorty
And a city boy named Dan
Had to prove who could run the fastest
To win miss Lucy's hand
Now Dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But shorty must have had something boys that can't be found in books

Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
That's what miss Lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
It's you I wanna win

Now Dan had been in training
A week before the race
He'd made up his mind old shorty
Would end in second place
Now Dan with his long legs flying
Left shorty far behind
And shorty heard him holler out
"Miss lucy you'll soon be mine"

Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
That's what miss Lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
It's you I wanna win

But shorty wasn't worried
He had a smile upon his face
He knew that he was gonna win
'Cause Lucy had fixed the race
And just like that old story 'bout the turtle and the hare
When Dan crossed over the finishing line
He found shorty waiting there

Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
That's what miss Lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
It's you I wanna win
