Ballads and Songs of Michigan
Me sister's a shaker and an apple pie baker; She makes them of taller and grease.
To-me-fang, to-me-fang, fang-o-leary; To-me-fang, to-mc-fang, fang-o-lay, To-me-hoot-tee-toot, hoot-tee-toot, larry; To-me-whack, Łal-dee-diddle al-a-day, To-me-whack, fal-dee-diddle al-de-day.
2    Me father is a hedger and ditcher, Me mother does nothing but spin;
Me sister is a shaker and an apple pie maker. O how the money comes in.
3    Me wife she is dirty, she is nasty; She is lousy and itchy and black.
She is a divil for fighting and scolding; Her tongue goes clickety-clack.
