Lil' Joe Pick-A-Ninny
Lil' Joe Pick-a-ninny was a small Negro child
by Clarence A. Graham, Jr.
The word pick-a-ninny was used by the West Indian slaves
Lil' Joe disappeared one day for many hours
All the family and friends were very afraid someone kidnapped Lil' Joe
Do you know where Lil' Joe was found?
He was in the middle of a hugh watermelon patch eating watermelon to his heart's content
When Lil' Joe grew up, he was the owner of the best watermelon patch in the land
Once a year, all the bands in the land gather at Lil' Joe's patch to have a musical festival
