Louis Armstrong / Zilner Randolph, 1935

lyrics

Now once there lived an old man
With a very crooked nose
He lived in a log hut
And they called him Ol' Man Mose
(Yeah!)
Early one mornin´ I knocked at his door
Didn't hear a single sound
I ain't gonna do it no more.

'Cause,
I believe Ol' Man, I believe Ol' Man
I believe Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead.
(I´m telling you)
I believe Ol' Man, I believe Ol' man
I do believe Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead.

Now
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe he's dead)

Oh, we belive
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe he's dead)

I went around to the side
And I peeped through the crack,
I saw an ooold man
Layin´ flat on his back
(Yeah!)
If Old Man Mose was dead asleep
I did not know
But after lookin' through that window (Ugh!)
I ain't gonna do it no more

'Cause,
I found out Ol' Man, I found out Ol' Man
yeah, I found out Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead
(I´m telling you)
I found out Ol' Man, What it´s all about Ol' Man
I found out Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead

Now
(We found out) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out he's dead)

Oh,
(We found out) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out he's dead)

Old Man Mose is dead!
