"Oie Dan'l Tucker clomb a tree, His Lord and Marster for to see. De limb hit broke and Dan got a fall— Nuver got to see his Lord at all!
"Git out oJ the way, Ole Dan Tucker! Git out o' the way, Ole Dan Tucker! Git out o' the way, Ole Dan Tucker! You're too late to git your supper.
"Miss Tucker she went out one day, To ride with Dan in a one horse sleigh. De sleigh was broke, and de horse was blind-Miss Tucker she got left behind. Git out o' the way, etc.
"As I come down de new cut road, I spied de peckerwood and de toad, And every time de toad would jump De peckerwood hopped upon de stump. Git out o' the way, etc.
"And next upon de gravel road, I met Br'er Tarypin and Br'er Toad. And every time Br'er Toad would sing Br'er Tarrypin cut de pigeon wing. Git out o' the way, etc.
"Ole Dan and me we did fall out, And what d'ye reckon it was about? He trod on my corn and I kicked him on the shins $ That's jest the way this row begins. Git out o' the way, etc.
