Watermelon On The Vine

See that watermelon a’hanging on the fence
How I wish that melon was mine
Some folks are foolish they just don’t have no sense
Or they wouldn’t leave that melon on the vine

   Hambone it is sweet chicken it is good
   Rabbit is so very very fine
   But give me oh give me oh how I wish you would
   That watermelon hanging on the vine

You may talk about your peaches your apples and your pears
Simmons growing on the tree
Folks have their favorites just most every where
But that watermelon is the best for me

I went to get that melon I thought I’d have some fun
The stars they had just begun to shine
But when I heard some moving I left there on the run
But I didn’t leave that melon on the vine
