Ol' mossback George he had plans
Gonna be an architect
But every time he turned around
His plans got wrecked

While everyone got their day in the sun
Poor ol' George he got squat
While everyone got their story writ
Poor ol' George he got no plot

Good ol' George
Ol' mossback George
He-haw, he-haw, he-haw

Ol' George he kept the home-fires lit
While his brother got all the glory
Ol' George he did his dutiful best
But his life it was a dreary story

Yeah, all his friends they traveled the world
Lived lives so rich and rife
Ol' George felt cheated and mistreated
He never got no wonderful life

Ol' George got stuck with a nagging wife
And a mess of screaming brats
While all friends they lived uptown
Like them uptown aristocrats

George was angry and George was bitter
Sometimes was downright violent
George he took the Lord's name in vain
But the Lord just sat there silent
