Doc Watson — Muskrat lyrics

Muskrat, Muskrat, wha makes your head so slick?
I've been a-livin' in the water so long, it's a
Wonder I ain't sick, I ain't sick, I ain't sick...

Well, Groundhog, Groundhog, why is your back
So brown?
It's a wonder I don't smother to death from livin'
In the ground, in the ground, in the ground...
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/doc-watson-muskrat-lyrics.html ]
Jaybird, Jaybird, why do you fly so high?
I've been eatin them acerns all my life, it's a
Wonder i don't die, I don't die, I don't die...

Now, rooster, rooster, why is your claw so hard?
Iv'e been scratchin' in the barnlot all my life, and it's a
Wonder I ain't tired, I ain't tired, I ain't tired...

Well, tomcat, old tomcat, why is your tail so long?
I been a-cussin' and a-fightin' all my life, it's a
Wonder it ain't gone, it ain't gone, it ain't gone...
