(B7sus4) Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right"

Uncle Toad lived in the wood out back
Lived in the shade of a utility shack
He looked in at the big brick house
At the girls as quiet as a mouse

Uncle Toad said, "You had best get it right"
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight

Uncle Toad tucked in the compost pile
Out by the back door look at him smile
He said, "Kid stop drinking that brew
Plan while you can or the joke's on you"

Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right"
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight

Uncle Toad sitting by the swimming pool
Sits in the sun when the weather turns cool
Sits in the sun when the girls walk by
Maybe they think he's a little bit sly

Uncle Toad said, "You had best get it right"
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight

Uncle Toad sitting by the cool mill race
All day long with a grin on his face
He said, "Boys you had better not try
Kissin'em girls 'cause I won't stand by

Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right"
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight

Uncle Toad sitting by the wrought iron fence
Looks at the moon like it don't make sense
We say, "Toad here's looking at you
Hoping you'll get your wish too"

Sway to the left, sway to the right
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight
