Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Fly’s in the buttermilk, shoo fly shoo
Fly’s in the buttermilk, shoo fly shoo
Fly’s in the buttermilk, shoo fly shoo
Skip to my Lou, my darling

[Chorus]

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Cat’s in the cream jar, looking at you
Cat’s in the cream jar, looking at you
Cat’s in the cream jar, looking at you
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Cow’s in the corn field, what’ll I do?
Cow’s in the corn field, what’ll I do?
Cow’s in the corn field, what’ll I do?
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Got a little red wagon painted blue
Got a little red wagon painted blue
Got a little red wagon painted blue
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Hop to Texas, two-by-two
Hop to Texas, two-by-two
Hop to Texas, two-by-two
Skip to my Lou, my darling

Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Lost my partner, what’ll I do?
Skip to my Lou, my darling

I’ll get another one prettier than you
I’ll get another one prettier than you
I’ll get another one prettier than you
Skip to my Lou, my darling

This clip is rather long, but it’s a great old black and white television find of folk artist Pete Seeger giving a banjo lesson with the song “Skip to My Lou”:
