We got a bill of sale right here
That says he belongs to us!
We bought him fair and square last year
And we own the little cuss!
Look here, read the writin' that gives us a legal claim
Oh, we got a bill of sale right here
With dear little Petey's name!

[I don't believe it]

We got a bill of sale in hand
and lady, if you don't budge
We'll pick ya up right where you stand
And bring ya before the judge

No sir!

That boy is our property
Same as the family cow
'Cause we got a bill of sale right here
And we're gonna take him now

You can't have him
(Petey's gotta do his chores)
You don't love him
(Paint the barn and wash the doors)
All you've done
(Shine shoes)
up to now
(Turn screws)
is break his heart
(Fix the broken fuse)
You'll abuse him
(He's so good at feedin 'hogs)
And just use him
(Pitchin' hay and choppin' logs)
Look out, or I'll take you apart
(We'd like to see you try it)

We got a bill of sale right here
He's ours until he dies

Stay where you are - just one more move
And you'll get it between the eyes!
You won't make a slave of him
Even if you connive!

Yes we will, 'cause we got a bill of sale right here
We got a bill of sale right here
We got a bill of sale right here, right here!

You can't have him
(He's gotta clean and sweep)
You don't love him
(Feed the hens and comb the sheep)
All you've done
(Plant seeds)
up to now
(Pull weeds)
is break his heart
(Bow to all our needs)
You'll abuse him
(Carry water from the well)
And just use him
(Answer every time we yell)
Watch out, or I'll take you apart
(We'd like to see you try it)

We got a bill of sale right here
That says he belongs to us
Fight all ya want
Won't do no good to holler and fume and fuss

Leave town, keep on goin' before I can count to five!

We got a bill of sale right here
We got a bill of sale right here
We got a bill of sale right here, right here!
Right here!
Right here!
