Lyrics The Auctioneer

Hey well alright Sir here we go there and what are ya
Gonna give for 'em?
I have a six hundred dollar down here
Now ten and now twenty-five and now thirty-five and now
There fifty now sixty will ya' give me sixty now seventy-five seventy-five
Another eighty-five dollars another buy 'em there 
There was a boy in Arkansas who wouldn't listen to his ma
When she told him that he should go to school
He'd sneak away in the afternoon take a little walk
And pretty soon you'd find him at the local auction barn
Well he'd stand and listen carefully then pretty
Soon he began to see how the auctioneer could talk so rapidly
He said oh my it's do or die
I've got to learn
That auction cry gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer
Twenty-five dollar thirty now thirty dollar thirty
Will you gimmie thirty make it thirty? bid it on a thirty dollar
Will you give me thirty who'll bid a thirty dollar bid?
Thirty dollar bid it now thirty-five will you gimmie thirty-five
To make it thirty-five to bid at thirty-five
Who would a bid it at a thirty-five dollar bid?
As time went on he did his best and all could see
He didn't jest he practied calling bids both night and day
His pap would find him behind the barn just a workin' up
An awful storm as he tried to imitate the auctioneer
Then his pap said son we just can't stand a havin'
A mediocre man
Sellin' things at auction usin' our good name
I'll send you off to auction school and then you'll
Be nobody's fool you can take your place among the best
Thirty-five dollar bid it now a fourty dollar fourty
Will you gimmie fourty make it fourty bidin' it on a fourty
Dollar will you gimmie fourty who'll bid a fourty dollar bid?
Fourty dollar bid it now fourty-five will you gimmie fourty-five
To make it a fourty-five to bid it a fourty-five
Who would a-bid it at a fourty-five dollar bid?
So from that boy who went to school there grew a man
Who played it cool he came back home a full fledged auctioneer
And the people came from miles around just to hear
Him make that rhythmic sound that filled their hearts with such a happy cheer
His fame spread out from shore to shore he had all
He could do and more had to buy a plane to get around
Now he's the tops in all the land so let's pause and
Give that man a hand he's the best of all the auctioneers
Fourty-five dollar bid it now a fifty dollar fifty
Will you gimmie fifty make it fifty? bidin' it on a fifty
Dollar will you gimmie fifty who'll bid a fifty dollar bid?
Fifty dollar bid it now fifty-five will you gimmie fifty-five
To make it a fifty-five to bid at fifty-five
Sold that hog for a fifty dollar bill
Hey well all right Sir open the gate
And let 'em out and walk 'em boys
Here we come a lot number twenty-nine in
What are you gonna give for 'em?
Have a twenty-five ought-a get thirty-five and now a
Fifty make it fifty bid it along at fifty
Now sixty will ya give me sixty now seventy-five and
Now eighty-five and now ninety-five a hundred now twenty-five
And now it's seventy-five and a two and a three and a
Four and a five and a six and seven now eight hundred dollars and a buy 'em there
