Ida Red, Ida Green
Purtiest gal I ever seen

Ida Red lives in town
Weighs three hundred and forty pounds

Ida Red, Ida Red
I'm just crazy about Ida Red

Ida Red, Ida Blue
Ida bit a hoecake half in two

Ida Red, Ida Red
Everybody's crazy about Ida Red

If I'd a-listend to what Ida said
I'd a-been sleeping in Ida's bed
