Bo Diddley bought his babe a diamond ring, if that diamond ring don't shine
He gonna take it to a private eye, if that private eye can't see
He'd better not take the ring from me

Bo Diddley caught a nanny goat, to make his pretty baby a Sunday coat
Bo Diddley caught a bear cat, to make his pretty baby a Sunday hat

Mojo come to my house, ya black cat bone, take my baby away from home
Ugly ole mojo, where ya bin, up your house, and gone again

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley have you heard?
My pretty baby says she was a bird
