Just a biting bug been following me everywhere I go
Just a biting bug been following me everywhere I go
I'm gonna kill that biting bug, so she won't follow me no more

Just a biting bug been following me from town to town
Just a biting bug been following me from town to town
Yes, she kept on a following me, till my good man have done put me down

I woke up this morning and that biting bug was in my bed
I woke up this morning and that biting bug was in my bed
Till I taken my pistol and I shot that biting bug dead

(Spoken: Yes, yes)

Hmm, I won't be worried with that biting bug no more
Hmm, I won't be worried with that biting bug no more
I done stopped that biting bug from following me everywhere I go

Now you girls don't have to worry, because that biting bug is gone
Now you girls don't have to worry, because that biting bug is gone
I done stopped that biting bug from breaking up other women's homes
