Subject: Lyr Add: MY PRETTY LITTLE PINK (from Sandburg)
In respect of the first, you may be mixing a couple of songs here, albeit both use 'floaters'. Lyrics for a couple of versions of the song best known as 'Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss' may be found in this thread:

'My Pretty Little Pink' does not seem to be in the DT or forum. The composite version in Sandburg's 'American Songbag' is:


My pretty little pink, I once did think
That you and I would marry
But now I've lost all hopes of you
And I have no time to tarry

I'll take my knapsack on my back
My rifle on my shoulder
And I'll march away to the Rio Grande
To view the forest over

Where coffee grows on white oak trees
And the river flows with brandy
Where the girls are sweet as sweet can be
And the boys like sugar candy

Do a forum search for the 'mockingbird' one and I am sure you will find plenty.
