American Ballads and Folk Songs
Oh, no, dat cannot be, etc.,
To shoot my husband in de first degree, etc.
Dey brought Bill home in de hurry-up wagon, etc., Dey brought Bill home with his toe-nails a-draggin', etc.
[Another Version] *
Oh, I was hungry from head to foot,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', Oh, I was hungry from head to foot,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', Oh, I was hungry from head to foot, And I went to a place to get something to eat,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', So soon.
I bought me a doughnut and licked off the grease,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', I bought me a doughnut and licked off the grease,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', I bought me a doughnut and licked off the grease, And gave the waiter a five-cent piece,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', So soon.
He looked at the nickel and he looked at me,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', He looked at the nickel and he looked at me,
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', And he said, " 'Tain't good, and you can't fool me,"
Dis mornin', dis ebenin', So soon.
