Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Btw, here's Thomas W. Talley's version of "Pretty Little Pink" [originally published in 1922, but this is from the 1966 Kennikat edition, p 127

PRETTY LITTLE PINK
My pretty liddle Pink,
I once did think,
Dat we-uns sho' would marry;
But I'se done give up,
Hain't got no hope,
I hain
t got no time to tarry.
I'll drink coffee dat flows
From oaks dat grows,
'Long de river dat flows wid brandy.

Note that the word "pink" is capitalized, as it might be if it was a referent for a person or a person's name.
