The Unconventional Gazette
June 14, 2013

Susie Lee done fell in love,
She planned to marry Joe.
She was so happy ‘bout it all,
She told her pappy so.

Pappy told her, Susie gal,
You’ll have to find another.
I’d just as soon yo’ ma don’t know,
But Joe is yo’ half-brother.

So Susie put aside her Joe
And planned to marry Will.
But after telling pappy this,
He said, There’s trouble still.

You can’t marry Will my gal.
And please don’t tell yo’ mother,
But Will and Joe, and several mo’
I know is yo’ half-brother

But mama knew and said, My child,
Just do what makes yo’ happy.
Go marry Will or marry Joe,
‘Cause you ain’t no kin to pappy!
