Lyrics: (indistinct lyrics are italicized)

Ah' When the old dog
and the young dog
Clap together
for a spree
(A') You can best bet
we'll all get wet
They'll be running
fast and free
A' "Bone sweet bone
Bone sweet bone"
Sing it loud and long
"Bone sweet bone
Bone sweet bone
Money's never wrong"
Although the old dog
got a bad hack
And the young dog
got tick
You can best bet
we'll all get wet
When the young dog
learns a trick
'A sing "Bone sweet bone
Bone sweet bone"
Sing it loud and long
"Bone sweet bone
Bone sweet bone
Money's never wrong"
A' there's a message
in this ditty
A' There's a moral
to this song
When the dogs all
a' get to bonin'
they'll be howlin'
"Money's never wrong"
Sing it
A' "Bone sweet bone
A' Bone sweet bone"
Sing it high and low
"Bone sweet bone
A' Bone sweet bone
Money's never wro-ooong"
(Bone, bone)
"Bone sweet
bone sweet bone"
Sing it high and low
"Bone sweet bone
Bone sweet bone
Money's never
money's never
money's never wrong
Money's never wrong"

Good god
"Bone sweet bone"

(Take a walk dog)
(Do I have ta' walk
fo' a "bone sweet bone" ?)
