Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
IF CHICKENS WERE CROWS
If crows were chickens
What a feast I'd have, Even if dem crows
You would have to halve; I'd have dem fedders
For to make mah bed, And I'd wear dem fedders
All over mah head.
And in de mawning
When ah wanted to snore, You wouldn't hear dem crows
With their caw! caw! caw! But if chickens were crows
Ah done hoi' mah breath, For if chickens were crows
Ah done starve to death.
