(American folk song)
Snake baked a hoecake* and set a frog to watch it,
And the frog got a-nodding and a lizard came and stole it.
Fetch back my hoecake, you long-tailed Nanny, you,
Fetch back my hoecake, you long-tailed Nanny you.
*A hoecake is made of cornmeal, originally baked on the blade of a hoe, similar to a pancake. (source)
Optional: Students could sing “pancake” instead of “hoecake” if they are not familiar with that word.
