GUEST,Gary Lyr Req: Old Man 'Badiah Jumped in the Fire (40) RE: Lyr Req: Old Man 'Badiah Jumped in the Fire 21 Jul 17

Here's the way Iremember it from my boyhood here in Texas, 60 + years ago.

Jack McGuire jumped in the fire
The fire's so hot, he jumped in the pot
The pot's so little, he jumped in the kettle
The kettle's so black, he jumped in a crack
The crack's so high, he jumped in the sky
The sky's so blue, he jumped in the slough
The slough"s so deep, he jumped in the creek
The creek's so shallow, he jumped in the tallow
The tallow's so hard, he jumped in the lard
The lard's so soft, he jumped in the loft
The loft's so rotten, he jumped in the cotton
The cotton's so white, he stayed all night
And smoked old Jack McGuire's pipe
