Lyrics
Well, I've a-come here to tell you folks, I'm ragged but I'm right
I'm a tramp and a rounder, I stay out late at night
A porterhouse steak three times a day for my board
That's more than any loafer in this mid-town can afford.

Well, a big electric fan to keep me cool while I sleep
A little baby boy to play 'round daddy's feet
I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler and I lead every life
Cause I tell you folks, I'm ragged but I'm right.

Now, when I got married, I knew I'd settle down
And built a little love nest right here in my hometown
So now I've got a family, one that I'm proud of
I know that I'll be happy, 'cause they're the ones I love.

Well, a big electric fan to keep me cool while I sleep
A little baby boy to play 'round daddy's feet
I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler and I lead every life
Cause I tell you folks, I'm ragged but I'm right...
