Cullud babies, what you like to eat?
Little chlllun, I'se got sumfin' sweet;
Hi-yi-yah! Coons and niggahs, get upon yoh feet,
Come and do as you was tole.
Look dar! I'se got possum, yum, yum, yum, you bet it's nice;
Quit dat shoutin' now, be just as still as mice;
All good chillun dey is gwine to have a slice
Oh de 'possum daddy stole; look dar!

Pickaninnies plckin' on de banjo, huckleberries all as black as coal:
Chickabiddies chasin' roun' de cabin, come an' eat de 'possum daddy stole;
Come, just come; oh, come, come an' eat de 'possum daddy stole.

Call yoh mammy, 'kase we want her heah!
Uncle Sammy, Fetch along de beer;
Hi-yi-yah! Aunt Sabina sittin' in de cheer;
lining de waterraillion cole;
Look dar! carve de 'possum-we am gwine to have a treat;
Slice de 'million, it am juicy, cool an' sweet;
Quit dat yellin', or de neighbors come an' eat
All de 'possum daddy stole; look dar!- Chorus.
