  • Song Lyrics:
    Beverly

    Beverly Hillbillies

    Huh, now lookie here people
    Listen to my story
    A little story 'bout a man named Jed
    You know something?
    That poor mountaineer
    They say he barely kept his family fed

    Now, let me tell you
    One day he was shootin'
    Old Jed was shootin' at some food
    When all of a sudden right up from the ground, there
    Well, there came a bubblin' crude

    Oil that is. Well, maybe you call it black gold or Texas tea
    He gonna move next to Mr. Drysdale And be a Beverly hillbilly...

    Before you know it, all the kinfolk are-a-sayin'
    Yeah, buddy, move away from there
    That little Clampett got his own cement pond
    That little Clampett, he's a millionaire

    Now, everyone said Californie
    Is the place that you oughta be
    We got to load up this here truck now
    We got to move to Beverly
    Hills, that is

    Swimming pools
    Move-a-move-a-movie stars
    Huh
    Lookit that, lookit that

    Beverly Beverly Beverly Hillbillies
    Y'all come back now, y'hear?
    Beverly Beverly Beverly Hillbillies
    Beverly Beverly Beverly Hillbillies
    Beverly Beverly Beverly Hillbillies
    (Sonic SBL)
