American Ballads and Folk Songs
It happened that a caravan was passing by the place, Laden down with frankincense and imitation lace*
They heard the Sheeney yelling and pulled him from the well If this ain't a proper ending, then you can go to Harvard.
I am a stern old bachelor,
My age is forty-four} I do declare 111 never live
With women any more.
Little sod shanty,
Sod shanty give to me,
* A song of the Middle West, from the collection of Professor E. F. Piper, University of Iowa.
