All that I got on the whole plantation
All that I love in the whole creation
In the round green world
Of a big blue skies

Is a fat little fella with his mammy's eyes
Little fella with his mammy's eyes

He play in the sun
And he roll in the clover
He watch for me when the day's work's over
He looks so cunning and he look so wise

That fat little fella with his mammy's eyes
Little fella with his mammy's eyes

Far away's off he can see and know me
And I heist him up on the mule before me
And I rides him home and his mammy's s'prised
At the fat little fella with his mammy's eyes
Little fella with his mammy's eyes

He got such ways and tricks about him
I know that I can't get along without him
And I thanks the Lord in the big blue skies

For the fat little fella with his mammy's eyes
Little fella with his mammy's eyes.

Frank Lebby Stanton and Sheridan Gordon 1913
