Philippine Island Rhyme
The following rhyme came to me through the kindness of Mr. C. W. Ransom, Grand Chain, 111., U. S. A. Mr. Ransom served three years with the United States Army in the Philippine Islands.
See that Monkey up the cocoanut tree,
A-jumpin' an' a-throwin' nuts at me?
El hombre no savoy,
No like such play.
All same to Americano,
No hay dique.
