Hambone Liza Jane Liza Jane where you've been baby
Down by the creek and making gin
Saw him just the other day
He had a horse and a bail of hay

He took me to this great big town
A lot of people are standing around
I wish I was not sitting at the piano
So I could see you all
Little Liza Jane
I tell you once and I tell you twice
Enjoy yourself and live your life

He took me to a great big town
A lot of people were standing around
Let's go
I tell you once I tell you twice
Enjoy yourself and live your life

I tell you once and I tell you twice
Enjoy yourself and live your life
Come on come on
I tell you once I tell you twice
I can't hear you
Enjoy yourself and live you life
