Bo Diddley buy baby a diamond ring
if that diamond ring don't shine
he gonna take it to a private eye
if that private eye can't see
he better not take that ring from me

Won't you come to my house back at home
take a-my baby on away from home
love a-that photo, where ya been
up to your house and gone again

Bo Diddley caught a fat cat
to make a-pretty baby a Sunday hat
Bo Diddley caught him a nanny goat
to make a pretty baby a Sunday coat

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley have you heard
my pretty baby says she wants a bird




It appears as though Buddy made up his own version of this song.
Though some of the lyrics are similar, below are the original lyrics as 
recorded by Bo Diddley for reference sake :


Bo Diddley bought his baby a diamond ring
but that diamond ring don't shine
so he better take it to a private eye
if that private eye can't see
he better not take that ring from me

Bo Diddley bought him a nanny goat
to make his pretty baby a Sunday coat
Bo Diddley caught him a bear cat
to make his pretty baby a Sunday hat

Mojo, mojo and black cat bone
took Bo Diddley away from home
Mother ask mojo, where you been
up to Bo Diddley's house and back again
Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, have you heard
my pretty baby says she wants a bird
