Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
RASTUS JOHNSON'S IDYL TO HIS MULE
Git ap, git ap,
You lazy old mule, You never went to college
And you never went to school; You haven't any manners
And you're nothing but a fool, Git ap, git ap,
You lazy old mule.
Git ap, git ap,
You lazy old mule, I could hit you with a hammer
And hit you with a stool; You never keep a promise
And you never keep a rule, Git ap, git ap,
You scalawag mule.
Git'ap, git ap,
You lazy old mule, I done a lot of swearing
Since I had that mule; You're nothing but a nuisance
And you're nothing but a fool, Git ap, git ap,
You lazy old mule.
