THE COURTING BOY
Wen I wus a liddle boy, Jes fifteen inches high; De way I court de pretty gals, It make de ole folks cry.
De geese swim in de middle pon'. De ducks fly 'cross de clover. Run an' tell dem pretty gals, Dat I'se a-comin' over.
Ho! Marindie! Ho!
Ho! Missindie! Ho!
Ho! Malindie! Ho! my gal!
I'se gwine now to see ole Sal.
