KEMO KIMO

In South Carolina the darkies go,
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
That's where the white folks plant the tow.
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
Cover the ground all over with smoke,
Sing song Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
And up the darkies' heads they poke.
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!

Chorus:
Kemo, kimo! There! oh where?--
With my hi, my ho, and in come Sally, singing
Sometimes penny winkle, lingtum, nipcat,
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!

[similarly:]

Milk in the dairy nine days old,
Frogs and the 'skeeters getting mighty bold,
They try to sleep, but it ain't no use,
Their legs hung out for the chickens to roost.
Chorus.

There was a frog lived in a pool,
Sure he was the biggest fool,
For he could dance, and he could sing,
And make the woods around him ring.
Chorus.
