My Duck, My Duck,
don't lie to me,
Tell me where did you sleep last night?

In the pond, in the pond,
where the sun never shines,
and I shivered the whole night through.-

My Duck, My Duck,
Where will you go
I'm goin' where the cold wind blows.

In the pond, in the pond,
Where the sun never shines,
I will shiver the whole night through.

My Duck, My Duck,
Don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night.

In the pond, in the pond,
Where the sun never shines,
I was shivering the whole night through.

My husband was
A railroad man
Killed a mile and a half from here.

His head was found
In the driver's wheel
And his body haven't never been found.

My Duck, My Duck,
Where will you go
I'm goin' where the cold wind blows.

You caused me to weep
And you caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my home.
