434          Ballads and Songs of Michigan
Sung in 1931 by Mrs. Edna Nummer Mercer, Belding.
1    They call me Rusty Old Rover, Right from the city of Kent, And so I deplored to come over And set myself down to repent.
With my twink, twink, twinkle I-twaddle, With my twink, twink, twinkle I-twee. With a hove 'er and a pove *er and a laddie, Whack fi-diddle-o-day.
2    I met my old woman one morning, She thought she would stand me a fight. I gave her a douse in the millpond And cautiously bade her good night.
