"Sweet Potatoes"

         
    1. Soon as we all cook sweet potatoes,
sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes.
Soon as we all cook sweet potatoes,
Eat 'em while they're hot.
 
         
   
2.
Soon as supper's gone, Mamma calls us,
Mamma calls us, Mamma calls us.
Soon as supper's gone, Mamma calls us,
Get along to bed.
 
         
   
3.
Soon's we touch our heads to the pillow,
to the pillow, to the pillow.
Soon's we touch our heads to the pillow,
Go to sleep right smart.
