  • Ooh-ooh
    Old Mr. Joe, he build a house away
    On top of some hill
    Old Mr. Joe knew he had to go, so he
    He got right down and wrote bank will
    He say now, here's to mother hen
    And her chicken, Lord have mercy now
    Master, will you take a roll in the mud
    Like you know you should?
    The old barnyard, the old barnyard
    Birds and the chick, ooh-wee
    Who's got to watch out for brother mongoose
    With his top hap and walking-stick?

    It's just the poor's brain washing
    (Poor's) They told me a long time ago,
    It's just the poor's brain washing, ooh-wee
    (Poor's brain washing) Now look at a thing like this

    Cinderella and her long lost fellow
    In the midnight hour, she lost her silver slipper
    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
    While Jack and Jill had themselves a fall

    It's just the poor's (brain washing)
    And I don't need it no longer (washing)
    It's just the poor's brain washing
    Coming through to a poor man's child, ooh-wee, look at this

    Little Miss Muffet she sat on a tuffet
    While Little Red Riding Hood delivered her grandmom's food
    Ooh-wee ooh-wee
    Ooh-wee, look at one more thing like this
    The cow jumping over the moon
    While the dish got jealous, he grabbed the handy spoon

    It's just the poor's brain washing
    And I don't need it no longer, I don't want it no longer
    I don't need it no longer (washing)
    And I don't care for no more brain washing (washing)
