0 - "Regular, regular rollin' under, give me the gourd to drink water. / I don't want no gourd for snow water ? // I never seen the like since I been born / The bull cow kicking off the milk cow's horn ?// Don't see what the people who wallk with me / They'll keep me down, won't let me free // Some of these days and it won't be long, / You'll look for me and I'll be gone ?" (etc)
