lyrics

Hear Lorenzo tootin on an old Kress horn
Bring him your rags bring him your bottles and bones
His mule is draggin a wagon loaded with junk
Take him them bottles that are piled up by your bunk

Bones from a hound
Tin from O’Mally’s roof
Might let the rain in
but that aint nothin to you

Rags rags bottles and bones
bring him your rags
bring him your bottles and bones

Bones rags
Bring him your rags bring him your bottles and bones
Rags and bones

Your Tin Whiskers blowin his King saxaphone
Don’t need no rags and his bucket’s full of soul
That sleepy ol cat is lyin up under the bed
lookin for somethin to ease his worried head

Take tin for some candy
Bones for an old cap gun
But soul is free
And if you listen we’ll give you some

Rags rags bottles and bones
Rags rags bottles and bones
GIve us your rags
Give us your bottles and bones

Rags and Bones
Bring us your rags bring us your bottles and bones

Rags and Bones
