GUEST,Elettra Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink (77* d) RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink 12 Dec 06

From my mother, who heard it from her aunt in the twenties in rural Alabama. She always called it "Bonnie Sweet Prince Charlie":

Charlie's neat and Charlie's sweet
My Charlie is a dandy
Every time he comes to town
He steals my sugar candy.

Over the river to feed my sheep
Over the river, Charlie
Over the river to grind my wheat
And measure out my barley.

Don't want your sheep, don't want your wheat
Nor do I want your barley
But I'll take a pound of the best you've got
To bake a cake for Charlie.

Repeat Vs. 1
