There was an old man,

And he had a calf,

And that’s half;

He took him out of the stall,

And put him on the wall,

And that’s all.

“Cornfield Lullaby”

By o’ Babun, dark yo’ shinin’ eye,

Snuggle soft and calm;

‘For yo’ come I wanted foh to die –

Lambie, O mah lamb!

Ole brack Sin war standin’ at de door,

Lookin’ roun’ foh me;

But I ‘spect yo’se skeered him off, foh shore,

‘Case he’s lef’ me be.
