NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
RABBIT SOUP
Rabbit soup! Rabbit sop! Rabbit e't my tunnup top.
Rabbit hop, rabbit jump, Rabbit hide behin' dat stump.
Rabbit stop, twelve o'clock, Killed dat rabbit wid a rock.
Rabbit's mine. Rabbit's skin'. Dress 'im off an' take 'im in.
Rabbit's on! Dance an' whoop! Makin' a pot o' rabbit soup!
OLD GRAY MINK
I once did think dat I would sink, But you know I wus dat ole gray mink.
Dat ole gray mink jes couldn' die, Wen he thought about good chicken pie.
He swum dat creek above de mill, An' he's killing an' eatin' chicken still.
