The Mauby Woman.
The Mauby Woman
I remember the good old days
When the Mau by Woman would pass our way
Especially out by de big plantation
With workers toiling in de hot, hot sun.
On her head she balanced that jar with such style
And on her face was always a friendly smile
As she turned the tap to fill the cups
Our faces too would soon lighten up.
As we drank the Mau by, golden brown
She always had enough to go around
She knew how to make us as happy as a lark
With that wholesome drink made from a tree's bark.
Unfortunately, gone are the days of the Mau by Woman
This drink is now sold at stores by the gallons
Just add the syrup to water and stir in a cup
Delicious Mauby, Let's drink it all up.
