I am the flunky of the house,

they call me Flunky Jim

    You'll find me knocking around the yard in a hat without a brim

    My overalls are shabby

and I have no shirt at all

    But I'm going to get a new outfit with my gopher tails next fall.


Oh, knocking around the yard, boys,

knocking around the yard,

     It isn't such an easy job,

don't fool yourself, old pard

   My overalls are shabby

and I have no shirt at all

    But I'm going to get a new outfit with my gopher tails next fall.


At night when Pa comes from the fields,

he calls for Flunky Jim

    He pats me on my curly head

and my hat without a brim.

    He's apt to say, "Oh, Flunky Jim,

your clothes are far too small."

    But I'm going to get a new outfit

with my gopher tails next fall.


I counted all my gopher tails,

I almost have enough

    To buy a hat, a fancy shirt,

and pants that have a cuff.

    And then I'll hand my old ones down - they really are too small.

    Oh, I'll be swell when once I sell my gopher tails next fall.
