OH! DAT WATERMELON.
Copyright, 1891, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Joe Hart.

A little colored girl and her brudder Sammy went into a watermelon patch;
They were afraid of mummy, for dey knew what dey would catch.
lucinda spied a great big watermelon, as ripe as ripe can be;
Sammy's face it brightened up, how he showed his ivories.

Chorus.
I'm, um, oh! dat watermelon, um, dey's so sorry now;
Urn, oh! dot watermelon, it wasn't very ripe anyhow;
Um, oh! dat watermelon, um, dey's so sorry now;
I'm. oh! dat watermelon, de doctor's wanted now.

They didn't have a knife for to cut dat melon, dey broke it wid a great big twig;
Dey ate 'till Sam exclaimed, dey said I couldn't, but I did.
Lucinda smiled, but she did look so funny, and green about de eyes;
Sammy's face was all out of shape, how he had increased in size.

Chorus.
Um, nm, oh! dat watermelon, um, dey's so sorry now;
Um, oh! dat watermelon, it wasn't very ripe anyhow;
Um, oh! dat watermelon, am, too long did dey linger,
Um, oh! dot watermelon, send for Sanford's ginger.
