“I Rock from Selma”


"I rock from Selma, ting tang, I'm a Georgia ruler, ting tang, I'm a Mobile gentelman, Susie-annah, Loan me de goar to drink water!" "Den all back-shuffle and clap yo' hands." "Come shuffle up, ladies, ting tang, Oh Miss Williams, ting tang."


This sounds like it's made up of floating verses -- but it isn't; none of the lyrics are familiar. So I guess it gets its own entry. - RBW
