You can hear this recording at The Internet Archive.

(Harry Stewart)
As recorded by Yogi Yorgesson and The Johnny Duffy Trio, S & G (3009), 1949.

1. My wife, she say: "Now, Ole, do you think that this is cute?
There's not a button left on the front of your union suit."
I said: "So what's the problem? If you'd like a flour sack,
Then I'll get in and out by way of the trap door in the back."

CHORUS: Oh, I don't give a hoot; I just don't give a hoot.
We got plenty of trouble but I just don't give a hoot.

2. Oh, Hjalmar he's my oldest boy; he's quiet like a mouse.
He built himself an aeroplane out of a chicken house.
He went to bed and dreamed all night of how he looped the loop,
Then he got up in the morning and went out and flew the coop. CHORUS

3. My neighbors, they raised twenty kids and now they're old and weak.
They never liked each other; no, they'd hardly ever speak.
Their oil stove it exploded and blew them up so high,
'Twas first time they'd been out together since eight years last July. CHORUS

4. My uncle, he is screwy, but he's always feeling grand.
At breakfast time he sits and stirs his oatmeal with his hand.
My wife, she called the doctor; he's the one who cured our goat.
"Your uncle he's OK," he says; "He's only feeling his oat."

LAST CHORUS: Oh, I don't give a hoot; I just don't give a hoot.
Except for Potrillo(?), I just don't give a hoot.
