American Ballads and Folk Songs
First that came was a little lady bug, And she had whisky in her jug.
Next that came was a bumblebee Dancing a jig with a two-legged flea.
"What shall the wedding supper be?" "Two blue beans and a black-eyed pea."
First came in a little moth For to lay the tablecloth*
Solemnly walked the Parson Rook, Under his arm a very large book.
The owl did hoot, the birds, they sang, And through the woods the music rang.
Next came in was a little red ant, She always says, "I can't, I can't."
Next came in was a bumblebee, She stung little Dickey on his knee.
Next came in was Doctor Fly, He said that little Dick must die.
First came in was a little brown bug, He drowned himself in the 'lasses jug.
Second came in was a little fly, He ate so much he almost died.
Last came in was a little brown snake, He coiled himself on the wedding cake.
[ 3^3
