Ya’ start workin’ at the break of day

Ya’ gonna’ do what the boss man say

Ya’ wouldn’t have it any other way.

[Repeat]

 

Watermelon mon

Workin’ in the sun

Stackin’ them watermelons

One by one

Watermelon mon

In the midday sun

Makin’ their wages

And sippin’ that rum

Hey boss mon

Gimme that rum

Workin’ to the beat

Of the midday sun

Hey boss mon

Gimme that rum

Workin’ to the beat

Of the watermelon

With a shirtless crew

Stackin’ them watermelons

Two by two

Watermelon mon

Take a look at you

Breakin’ your back

And a muscle or two

Hey boss mon

Gimme that rum

Workin’ to the beat

Of the midday sun

Hey boss mon

Gimme that rum

Workin’ to the beat

Of the watermelon

 

Hey boss mon Oh

Watermelon mon Hey
