DE Injun summah's comin',
De bees is all froo hummin',
De watah-mellon thumbin'
Has passed long time ago.
De ole clock in de kitchen
Is tickin' mos' bewitchin',
While Gabe is out unhitchin'
Just kase it looks like snow.

De lambs is runnin' over
De aftahmath ob clovah,
An' yondah comes de drovah;
I 'spec he' got a yahn
About de ole bell-weddah
Dat's wand'rin roun' de meddah
An' wants ter git togeddah
Wid de sheep up roun' de bahn.

Some days de sun is shinin',
Some days de win' is whinin',
An' den I'se after fin'in'
Big pippins on de groun';
De birds hab all stopped singin',
Wil' geese is soufward wingin',
Jes' look an' see 'em stringin'
Whar warmah weddah's foun'.

De yaller cat is nappin'
En layin' roun' an' gappin';
Bimeby he will be slappin'
Some tom-cat on de wall.
Dar's a mellah, yellah glory
Kase de yeah is ol' an' ho'ry,
An' a melancholy story
So't o' hangin' roun' us all.
