Primus
Amos Moses
[Intro]
Yeah
Here comes Amos

[Verse 1]
Amos Moses was a Cajun
And lived by himself in the swamp
Hunting alligator for a living
He used to knock 'em on the head with a stump
The Louisiana law's gonna get you, Amos
It ain't legal hunting alligator down in the swamp, boy

[Verse 2]
Now everybody blamed his old man
For raising him mean as a snake
When Amos Moses was a boy
His Daddy would use him for alligator bait
Tie a rope around his waist
And throw him in the swamp
Alligator bait on the Louisiana bayou

[Chorus]
'Bout 45 minutes
Southeast of Thibodaux, Louisiana
There lived a man called Duck Bill Sam
And his pretty wife Hannah
They raised up a son that could
Eat up his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of the cloth
They called him Amos Moses

[Verse 3]
Yeah
Now folks in South Louisiana
Said Amos was a helluva man
He could trap the biggest, meanest alligator
He only had to use one hand
That's all he got left
'Cause the alligator bit him
Left arm gone, clean up to the elbow

[Verse 4]
Well, the Sheriff got wind that
Amos was in the swamp hunting alligator skin
So he hid in the swamp, I'm gonna get you, boy
He never did come out again
Well, I wonder where the Louisiana Sheriff went to?
Sure can get lost in the Louisiana bayou
[Chorus]
'Bout 45 minutes
Southeast of Thibodaux, Louisiana
There lived a man called Duck Bill Sam
And his pretty wife Hannah
They raised up a son that could
Eat up his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of the cloth
They called him Amos Moses

[Outro]
Sit down on 'em, Amos
Make it count, son
Here comes Amos
Yeah
Yeah
Get down at 'em, boy
