This is one of H&J's better parodies.

I'M MOVIN' ON
(As sung by Homer and Jethro)

The old hound dog was a-feelin' fine
Till he fell in the barrel of turpentine.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He passed the gate like an eighty-eight.
He's a-movin' on.

There was a smart guy from the city
And he picked up a strip├Ęd kitty.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
We held our nose as we burned his clothes.
We're a-movin' on.

I let a man work on my car.
Then he grabbed hold of a spark-plug "war."
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He turned it loose when he felt the juice.
He's a-movin' on.

The old tomcat was a-feelin' mean
When he caught his tail in the sewin' machine.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He ripped a stitch when he hit the ditch.
He's a-movin' on.

The old man's face got white as a sheet
When he slipped and fell in his Cream of Wheat.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He flapped his ears as he shifted his gears.
He's a-movin' on.

Uncle John got awful clean
When he fell into the washin' machine.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He couldn't straddle that dog-gone paddle.
He's a-movin' on.

We travel a lot to make our showin'.
The way we sing, we have to keep goin'.
We're a-movin' on. We're a-movin' on.
We've gotta go. Here comes Hank Snow.
We're a-movin on.
