Jemima surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
Ain't no pretender, gonna ride in my canoe
If I were a barker in a girly show,
Tell ya what I'd do,
I'd lock the door, tear my shirt and let my river flow
Oh, oh, sweet Jemima, wont'cha come out tonight?
The ground is so warm and the moon is so bright!

Jemima surrender, that's all you have to do
I'll bring over my Fender
And I'll play all night for you
There's a bird on my head
And his mouth won't talk (He won't talk-- he's in shock),
You know he laughs just like a goose,
But looks like a hawk
Jemima, you know what I'm tryin' to say,
Meet me in the front and we'll fly away

You can change your name
You can find a new walk
You can change your lock, it's all the same
You don't have to give out
If you'll only give in
You can jump and shout
But can't you see girl, that I'm bound to win

Jemima surrender, I'm gonna give it to you,
Ain't no pretender, wanna see my tattoo?
I hand you my rod and you hand me that line,
That's what you do
And now we ain't doin' much fishin'
Or drinkin' any wine
Sweet Jemima, if I were a king
I'd fix you up with a diamond ring
