You wrote "theres a different on [one?] when mississippi was a baby a baby she acted like this wa wa suck my thumb", I can't recall where I read it, but I remember a rhyme someone had written from her childhood that had the state name "Mississippi" used as a female nickname that was prefaced by the title "Miss"- "Miss-a Sippy" {"Sippy" being the female nickname.

I'm wondering if that is what you meant by your sentence.
