My Mother Bid Me
2   My mother she told me to set him a stool. I set him a stool and he looked like a fool.
3   My mother she told me to tell him to come back no more. I told him to come back no more, but he hung in the door.
4   My mother told me to run him away.
I run him away, but he come back the next day.
5   My mother told me to ride him a path.
I rode him a path, then he went the road fast.
