Jump Down Spin Around
Harry Belafonte Lyrics


Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day

Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale of cotton
Gotta jump down, spin around and pick a bale a day
I saw 'skeeter on my head,
Blinked his eye and I killed him dead
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch o'turnip
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch a day
Gotta weed a patch o' turnip
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch o'turnip
Gotta jump down, spin around and weed a patch a day

I saw a gal in calico,
She tripped and fell, and she didn't say hello
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o'greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o'greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day
Gotta cook a a pot a day
Gotta spin around, spin around and jump down
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o'greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day

I got a pig who's nice and greasy,
All you ladies shake it easy
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and tote a pail a day

Little Sally jump down
Gotta tote a pail a day
Little Joe jump down
Gotta tote a pail a day
Little Sally jump down
Little Joe jump down
Gotta tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down
Gotta tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down
Gotta tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around tote a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around tote a pail a day

I don't know but I've been told,
A gopher really don't live in a hole
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
Gotta sweat a pail a day?
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a mess o'greens
Gotta jump down, spin around and cook a pot a day
Spin around, spin around, spin around, spin around
Spin around, spin around, spin around, spin around
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail o' water
Gotta jump down, spin around and sweat a pail a day
