Soon as Mammy cooks swee' petatehs,
Swee' petatehs, swee' petatehs,
Soon as Mammy cooks swee' petatehs,
Eat 'em all right up!

Soon as suppeh's* et*, Mammy hollehs,
Mammy hollehs, Mammy hollehs,
Soon as suppeh's et, Mammy hollehs,
"Git* along to baid!*"

Soon's we put our haids to de peello,
To de peello, to de peello,
Soon's we put our haids to de peello,
Go to sleep right smart!

Soon's de rooster crow in de mo'hnin',
In de mo'hnin', in de mo'hnin,
Soon's de rooster crow in de mo'hnin',
Time to start de day!
