Uke Lyr Req: More Work for the Undertaker (F W Leigh) (53* d) RE: Lyr Req: More Work for the Undertaker 19 May 08

Another version or perhaps just a fragment appended to another song: 'The Hoochie-Koochie Dance'. From 'Roll Me in Your Arms - Unprintable Ozark Folksongs and Folklore', Vance Randolph / ed. Gershon Legman, vol.1, p.525:

Always a-mind your Paw,
An' always a-mi-i-ind your Maw;
You'll never split your pants
At the hoochie-koochie dance.

Little job for the undertaker,
Little job for the casket-maker,
And a li-i-ittle ride
With the (wooden) box - inside!

"Sung as above by Mr. H.A., Joplin, Missouri, September 4, 1933. He heard it in Jasper County, Missouri, about 1900."
