I want to tell you a story from way back
truck on down and dig this jack
there's Big Moe, Little Moe, Four Eyed Moe, Ain't no Moe
Look at brother, look at brother, look at brother Eat Moe.

Who's the greatest band around
makes those cats jump up and down
who's the talk of rhythm town?
Five Guys names Moe

When they start to beat it out,
everybody jump and shout
who do the critics rave about?
Five Guys names Moe

They came out of nowhere but that don't mean a thing
they rate high, you know why, when you hear them swing
High brow , low brow all agree, they're the best at harmony
tellin' you folks you gotta see,
Five Guys names Moe

There's one guy, Big Moe
two guy, Little Bitty Moe
three guys, Four Eyed Moed
four giys, Eat Moe
five guys, No Moe
Five little Guys names Moe
