  First we go to hoe our garden,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.  
     
  Next we carry jugs of water,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.  
     
  Then we pound the yellow corn,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.  
     
  Then we stir our pots of mash,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.  
     
  Now we eat, come gather 'round the campfire,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.  
     
  Now we eat, come gather 'round the campfire,  
     
  Ya, ya, ya, ya.
