She's gone away to Leb'non State, To hoe de corn and bake de cako , Massa says it is too late, Let her go to Leb'non State.
Chorus. Fi, hi, hi, lum I dum diddle lum, Fi, hi, hi, ri tiddle lum i dum, Fi, hi, hi.
And since she's gone and left me,
I don't know what I'll do ; 1*11 buy a rope and drown myself:

Chorus. Fi, hi, hi, &c.
