“Eggs are higher this week,” as the hen remarked when she went a way up the haymow and stole a nest in the darkest corner.
 
A hop and a skip and a jump we went when old Jim began talking to his fiddle: “Reelin’ and errrockin’. I’m bound to go. Reelin and eerockin’. I’m bound to go.  Ladies, fare you well. Swang and change. Reelin and errockin. My head grew disarray, and as I swung Big Sis, I reached my arms ‘round her as far as they could go, and I yelled bring me a piece of chalk. Turn your corner. Swing your partner. Bring me that chalk. I’ve hugged Big Sis half way ‘round. Now I want to hug the other side.”

La Grippe
Little grains of quinine,
Little drinks of rye
Make la grippe that’s got you
Drop its hold and fly
This may quickly help you
If you will only try
But don’t forget the quinine
When you take the rye.
