Bo Diddley bought his baby a diamond ring, but that diamond ring don't shine
So he better take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see, he better not take that ring from me
Bo Diddley bought him a nanny goat, to make his pretty baby a Sunday coat
Bo Diddley caught him a bear cat, to make his pretty baby a Sunday hat
Mojo, mojo, and black cat bone, took Bo Diddley away from home
Mother ask mojo, where you been?
Up to Bo Diddley's house and back again
Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, have you heard?
My pretty baby says she wants a bird
