Dry Bed
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Billy Bragg

I waked up in a dry bed, Mommy, come see
I waked up in a dry bed, Daddy, I did
I woke up in a dry bed, dry feet and a dry head
I am a big boy now

Hey, lookit my dry bed! Come feel my dry bed!
My bed's all dry, dry, I'm a big boy!
Look, lookit my dry bed! Dry, dry, my dry bed!
My bed's all dry, dry, I'm a big boy!

Th' rain didn't rain an' wet my bed, Momsey, come see
River didn't run an' wet my bed, Dadsey, hey, look
Dry, dry bed and a heave and a ho
Take me to the movie show! I am a big boy now!

Pussycat didn't wet my bed last night, Sister, come feel
Puppydog didn't make my beddybed wet, Brother, take a peek
Dry, dry bed and a yippy yippy yi
Take me down to the pony ride! I am a big boy now!
