The Boola-Boola Maid Analysis

In the wilds of Madagascar, Dwelt a Boola-boola maid;

For her hand young men would ask her, But she always was afraid.

Oh that Boola-boola maid She was living in the shade Of a spreading Yum-yum tree;

And - when the day was done At the setting of the sun, She would make this melodee:

As this ditty she was cooing, Came a Boola-boola man;

And he lost no time in wooing; For he punched her on the pan.

Oh that Boola-boola maid She was terribly afraid So he punched her on the eye;

And - then he laugh'd with glee As beneath the Yum-yum tree He - heard that maiden cry:

Then with shrieks of ribald laughter, Said the Boola-boola man;

"If it's only socks you're after, I will do the best I can.

I have handed you a pair, And I've plenty more to spare," So he socked her on the nose;

And a woeful maid was she, As beneath the Yum-yum tree, This - lamentation 'rose:

Now the wedding tom-tom's over, for this Boola-boola maid;

And when ev'ning shadows hover, She no longer is afraid.

For she weasrs a palm-leaf pinny And she rocks a pickaninny In the shade of the Yum-yum tree,

And she's happy with her he-man, Though she still dreams of a She-man, As she sings this song with glee:


        Oh - I don't want my cave-man to caress me,

        Oh I don't want no coal-black heads to press me.

        All I want is a fellow who wears suspenders,

        That'll be the coon to whom this babe surenders.

        For the man I wed must have a proper trouseau.

        On none of your fig-leaf dudes will make me do so.

        For it's funny how I feel, But I'm crazy for socks appeal

        And my dream is to marry a man with a pair of socks.
