Little Lizzie was about three days old,
when she picked up a fiddle and she picked up a bow,
and she laid down her bottle and she began to play.

People come a'runnin' from miles around
to hear Lizzie play when the sun goes down,
and she laid down her bottle and she began to play.
And she'd play.

- Chorus -
Down in the hollow underneath the moon,
Skunk is a'dancin' with the ol' raccoon,
The fox and the possum steppin' to and fro,
While seven little alligators do-si-do.

Hoot owl singin' out one high note,
Blendin' her voice with the ol' coyote,
Big ol' bear swings the cluck ol' hen,
While Little Lizzie plays on her violin.

- 2 -
Lizzie's little brother's life had lust begun,
when he picked up a battered old accordion,
and he laid down his bottle and he began to play.

People come a'runnin' from miles around
to hear Billie play when the sun goes down,
and he laid down his bottle and he began to play
And he'd play.

- 3 -
Ninety-five years of music and song,
played upon the fiddle and accordion,
kept Lizzie and Billie feeling young.

People come a'runnin' from miles around
to hear Lit and Billie when the sun goes down,
and they lay down their walkin' canes and they begin to play.
And they'd play.
