Melvin Wine played this with a lot of bounce. He said that it was written by Wayne Raney, and sang the following lyrics (which are similar to, but not quite, the lyrics that Raney sang on the last verse):

Oh, it start down the rain
and I got to go
I'll see you tomorrow,
fit and so
Now you start a-fussin'
and I'll start a fight
Pardon my whiskers while I kiss you goodnight

For reference, here's Wayne Raney's version:
