Quotes From "The Rooster Crows: A Book of American Rhymes and Jingles"

"The rose is red, the violet's blue,
Sugar's sweet and so are you.
If you love me as I love you,
No knife can cut our love in two.
My love for you will never fail
As long as pussy has a tail."
"As sure as the vine
Twines 'round the stump
You're my darling sugar lump."
