So Long (It's Been Good to Know Yuh!) (Homer & Jethro?) We'll sing you a song and here's the first verse It's gotta get better; it cain't get no worse So loan us your ears for a minute 'er two And we'll give 'em right back jist as soon as we're thru. (Singin'-) So Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh! So Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh! So Oh Oh Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh! What a long time since I've been home And I've gotta be driftin' along. I had me a toothache; it hurt me so bad I went to the dentist; now I'm sad He yanked with his fingers and pulled with his thumb He left all my teeth; but he pulled out my gums. (I said-) CHORUS I went out to milk the cow one day With a stool and a bucket and a fork full of hay I set down the bucket; plopped on the stool I said: "Be still Bossie, you stubborn old fool." Be still now Bossie, quit stompin' the ground I've been out all night; a-runnin' around She looked sympathetic with her big eyes of brown She said, "Just hang on and I'll jump up and down." (I said-) So Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh! Hang on, I ain't a-gonna throw yuh! So Oh Oh Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh! What a long time since I've been home And I've gotta be driftin' along.
