Thread Name: Origins: 'You black pickaninny from old Virginny'
Subject: RE: Origins: Black Pickaninny all the way from Old V
Early in the morning
Ere the sun do rise.
Laying on a corncob bed.
Baby rolling over
hazel colored eyes,
little wee kinky woolly head.
Mammy is a dozin dreamin of the bliss.
Thinkin of the days gone by.
Hush my little cherub give your pap a kiss.
God bless the day that he was born.
REFRAIN:
Hello baby, here's your daddy.
Up and down the baby goes.
He's a black pickaninny
all the way from old Virginny.
Goodness how that baby grows.
