BLACK-AMERICAN JUMP-ROPE PHYME

MY MAMA, YO MAMA, SITTING IN A DITCH.
MY MAMA CALLED YO MAMA A BIG FAT SON-
OF-A-PITCH ME OUTTA THE WINDOW, THROW
ME ON A ROCK, LONG CAME A BUMBLE BEE
AND STUNG ME ON MY COCK-TAIL, VIRGINIA
ALE, 15 CENTS A GLASS, IF YOU DON'T
BELIEVE ME JUST KISS MY BIG FAT ASK ME
NO QUESTIONS, I'LL TELL YOU NO LIE, JUST
FOLLOW ME TO MY HOTEL AND I'LL PROVE IT
TILL I DIE.
