1. Hambone, hambone, have you heard?
Papa’s gonna buy you a mocking bird.
2. If that mockingbird don’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring!
3. If that diamond ring don’t shine,
Papa’s gonna try some turpentine!
4. If that turpentine’s a mistake
Papa’s gonna throw you in the lake!
5. If that water splash on you
This whole story just ain’t true!
