NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
SUGAR LOAF TEA
Bring through yo' * Sugar-lo'-tea, bring through
yo' * Candy, All I want is to wheel, an' tu'n, an' bow to my Love
so handy.
You tu'n here on Sugar-lo'-tea, I'll tu'n there on
Candy. All I want is to wheel, an' tu'n, an' bow to my Love
so handy.
Some gits drunk on Sugar-lo'-tea, some gits drunk
on Candy, But all I wants is to wheel, an' tu'n, an' bow to my
Love so handy.
GREEN OAK TREE! ROCKY'O
Green oak tree! Rocky'o! Green oak tree! Rocky'o!
Call dat one you loves, who it may be,
To come an' set by de side o' me.
"Will you hug 'im once an' kiss 'im twice?"
"W'y! I wouldn' kiss 'im once fer to save 'is life!"
Green oak tree! Rocky'o! Green oak tree! Rocky'o!
* Nicknames applied in imagination to the women en­gaged in playing in the Play Song.
