Mosquitoes buzzin' 'round my head
Spanish moss for my bed
I very seldom see dry land
'Cause I'm an alligator man.
I hunt the 'gators all night long
I sell their hides and then I'm gone
I take the bill to Bayou Sam
Who loves that tall 'gator man.
This bayou country is my home
The friendliest lake I've ever roamed
'Cause I'm the leader of the clan
Known as that tall 'gator man.
And when I bring those hides to town
All the people gather 'round
They just want to shake the hand
Of that tall 'gator man.
Some people search this world for fame
But hunting 'gators is my game
And by the scars upon my hand
So I'm an alligator man.
