NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
WASHING MAMMA'S DISHES
When I wus a liddle boy A-washin' my mammy's dishes, I xund my finger down my th'oat An' pulled out two big fishes!
When I wus a liddle boy A-wipin' my mammy's dishes, I sticked my ringer in my eye An' I sho' seed liddle fishes.
De big fish swallowed dem all up! It put me jes a-thinkin'. All dem things looks awful cu'ous! I wonder wus I drinkin' ?
WILLIE WEE
Willie, Willie, Willie Wee! One, two, three. If you wanna kiss a pretty gal, Come kiss me.
