Deal Score0

Once der was a meetin’ in de wilderness,
All de critters of creation dey was dar;
Brer Rabbit, Brer ‘Possum, Brer Wolf, Brer Fox,
King Lion, Mister Terrapin, Mister B’ar.
De question fu’ discussion was, ‘Who is de bigges’ man?’
Dey ‘pinted ole Jedge Owl to decide;
He polished up his spectacles an’ put ’em on his nose,
An’ to the question slowly he replied:

‘Brer Wolf am mighty cunnin’,
Brer Fox am mighty sly,
Brer Terrapin an’ ‘Possum — kinder small;
Brer Lion’s mighty vicious,
Brer B’ar he’s sorter ‘spicious,
Brer Rabbit, you’s de cutes’ of ’em all.’

Dis caused a great confusion ‘mongst de animals,
Ev’y critter claimed dat he had won de prize;
Dey ‘sputed an’ dey arg’ed, dey growled an’ dey roared,
Den putty soon de dus’ begin to rise.
Brer Rabbit he jes’ stood aside an’ urged ’em on to fight.
Brer Lion he mos’ tore Brer B’ar in two;
W’en dey was all so tiahd dat dey couldn’t catch der bref
Brer Rabbit he jes’ grabbed de prize an’ flew.

Brer Wolf am mighty cunnin’,
Brer Fox am mighty sly,
Brer Terrapin an’ Possum — kinder small;
Brer Lion’s mighty vicious,
Brer B’ar he’s sorter ‘spicious,
Brer Rabbit, you’s de cutes’ of ’em all.
