What’cha gonna do when the river goes dry, babe? What’cha gonna do when the river goes dry? “I’ll sit on the bank and watch the crawdads die” Honey, sugar baby mine What’cha gonna do when the crawdads die, honey? What’cha gonna do when the crawdads die, babe? What’cha gonna do when the crawdads die? “I’ll sit on the bank and cry, cry, cry” Honey, sugar baby mine Look at that crawdad strut around, honey Look at that crawdad strut around, babe By the way that crawdad struts around I’d say he’s the mayor of crawdad town Honey, sugar baby mine
