FOX AND RABBIT DRINKING PROPOSITIONS
Fox on de low ground, Rabbit on de hill. Says he: "I'll take a drink, An' leave you a gill."
De fox say: "Honey,
(You sweet liddle elf!)
Jes hand me down de whole cup;
I wants it fer myself."
A TURKEY FUNERAL
Dis tucky once on earth did dwell; An' "Gobble! Gobble! Gobble!" But now he gives me bigges' joy, An' rests from all his trouble.
Yes, now he's happy, so am I ; No hankerin' fer a feas': Because I'se stuffed wid tucky meat, An' he struts in tucky peace.
