American Ballads and Folk Songs OU SOM SOUROUCOU*
Ou Som Souroucou, qui ga ou gagnien, gagnien pou' boi' do l'eau? —Mo mange, mange mais pou' boi' do l'eau—Mo mange, mange mai's pou' boi' do l'eau.
Ou Som Souroucou, what's matter with you to drink so much water? I ate corn and have to drink so much water.
•From Clara Gottschalk Peterson's Crtol* Sengs from New Orleans (New Orleans: L. Gruenwald & Co- 1909).
