Down in hogan's alley lived miss nancy ann,
Always fussin', squabbling with her man;
Then i heard miss nancy say,
"why do you treat your gal that way?"

I went down the alley, other night,
Nancy and her man had just had a fight;
He beat miss nancy 'cross the head,
When she rose to her feet, she said,

"you low down alligator, just watch me sooner or later,
Gonna catch you with your britches down.
You 'buse me and mistreat me, you dog me around and beat me,
Still i'm gonna hang around.

"take all my money, blacken both of my eyes,
Give it to another woman, come home and tell me lies;
You low down alligator, just watch me sooner or later,
Gonna catch you with your britches down, i mean it,
Gonna catch you with your britches down."
