Some Songs I'll Sing
Some songs I'll sing, some jokes I'll tell,
All about a doctor, well he fell in the well,
When he fell he broke his collar-bone,
He should tend to the sick and let the well alone.
Two Jews went a-riding in a leaky boat,
The boat begin to sink and she would not float,
Just let her sink to the bottom of the sea,
I say, Let her sink, she don't belong to me.
I've got a girl in Boston town She weighs about four hundred pound,
In a shoe store she went one day,
The shoe clerk fainted dead away.
Says, You go home and soak your feet In alum water about one week,
When your feet get thin, come back agin
I'll fit you with the box that the shoes come in.
Last night as I lay sleeping upon my bed,
With my mouth open big-wide,
A big wolf-rat jumped in my mouth
And I coughed and I coughed and I couldn't git him out
Laid a piece of cheese upon my chin,
A big tomcat set a-waiting for him,
Well the cat made a leap and the rat left the stall,
I swallowed rat, cat, cheese and all.
