American Ballads and Folk Songs THE HIGHLY EDUCATED MAN*
I'm a very highly educated man— And to keep my brains beneath my hat, I planj Pve lived on earth so long -That I used to sing this song When Abraham and Isaac rushed the can*
I was born about ten thousand years ago— And there's hardly anything that I don't knowj For I saw old Pharaoh's daughter, Picking Moses from the water— I can lick the man who says it isn't so.
I was there when Gabriel searched the garden o'er, I met Eve and Adam flying from the door. When the apple they were eating, I was round the corner peeping— I can prove that I'm the man that ate the core.
