Jump Down Spin Around

Jump Down Spin Around

Harry Belafonte

Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day

I saw `skeeter on my head,
Blinked his eye and I killed him dead
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch o`turnip,
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch a day
Gotta weed a patch o` turnip
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch o`turnip
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch a day

I saw a gal in calico,
She tripped and fell, and she didn`t say hello
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o`greens,
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day
Gotta cook a mess o`greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o`greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day

I got a pig who`s nice and greasy,
All you ladies shake it easy
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail o` water,
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail a day
Gotta tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail o` water
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail a day

I don`t know but I`ve been told,
A gopher really don`t live in a hole
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o` water,
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
Gotta sweat a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o` water
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
