Miss Susie had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell--ding ding
Miss Susie went to heaven
The steamboat went to hell--o
Operator give me number nine
If you disconnect me
I'll push you right behind--the refrigerator
There lay a piece of glass
Miss Susie fell upon it
And broke her little ass.
Ask me no more questions;
Tell me no more lies;
Miss Susie told me all of this
The day before she died.
This song is sung while clapping hands with a partner. The informant does practice it now at Hull Elementary School in Livonia.
