Lyrics:

 ^ Did you ever hear the story of Ragged, Jagged Jack
Here he comes down the street with a pack on his back
He comes in the morning, and he comes at night, and he gobbles up ev'ry thing in sight
He wakes up the neighborhood for miles around
He's a regular alarm clock, always wound
He gets beneath your window when you try to get to sleep
And yells in a voice so loud and deep

Any rags, lady, no, no rags today, heeheeheehee, alright lady

Any rags, any rags, any rags, any bones, any bottles today
There's a big black rag picker coming this way
Any rags, any rags, any rags, any bones, any bottles today
It's the same old story in the same old way

If you happen for to leave a thing out all night
You get up in the morn and it's gone from yer sight
You'll know then that Ragged Jack has been that way
He's a very bad omen, people say he stole all his furniture, he stole his wife
If he'd steal from his friend he'd steal your life
He never gets molested as he daily walks about
But things disappear when he yells out

Any rags, any rags, any rags, any bones, any bottles today
There's a big black rag picker coming this way
Any rags, any rags, any rags, any bones, any bottles today
It's the same old story in the same old way
