Digital Tradition Mirror



O, the raccoon got a bushy tail
And possum tail hit's bare
And the rabbit ain't got no tail atall
'Cept a little bunch o' hair.

Love, hit is a killin' fit
Beauty, hit's a blossom.
Effen yo want yo finger bit
Jes' stick it at a possum.

I tuck my gal to the barbecue
An' this is all she eat
Is a pot and a half o' Brunswick stew
And a side and a half of meat.

Love, hit is a funny thing
Shaped jes' like a lizard.
Crawls right down your backbone
Nibbles at yo gizzard.
