"Paw Paw Tree" as written by and Matthew Friedberger....
At last when the choice was neither nor,
Bottom of the bay we're set ashore.
Went into town beg what we lack:
Two hundred stripes on horseback.
Wearing my yellow coat,
Rope tied around my throat:
Great green wax candle unlit;
Silence! And then the sentence spit.
I'm sitting up in my paw paw tree
Wait they make mango mush outta me.
Pick axe I can't stay
Silver mines all day.
Cut down the weedwood
And think that I just could.
I'm sitting up in my paw paw tree
Wait they make mango mush outta me.
Tied down with brown twine
Up past the tree line
Up by I hope where
The King of Spain don't care.
I'm sitting up in my paw paw tree
Wait they make mango mush outta me.
