NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
JAWBONE
Samson, shout! Samson, moan! Samson, bring on yo' Jawbone.
Jawbone, walk! Jawbone, talk! Jawbone, eat wid a knife an fo'k.
Walk, Jawbone! Jinny, come alon'! Yon'er goes Sally wid de bootees on.
Jawbone, ring! Jawbone, sing! Jawbone, kill dat wicked thing.
INDIAN FLEA
Injun flea, bit my knee;
Kaze I wouldn' drink ginger tea.
Flea bite hard, flea bite quick; Flea bite burn lak dat seed tick.
Hit dat flea, flea not dere. I'se so mad I pulls my hair.
I go wild an' fall in de creek. To wash 'im off, I'd stay a week. 12
