Lincoln Lincoln

Lincoln, Lincoln
I've been thinkin'
What on Earth
Have you been drinkin'?
Tastes like whiskey,
Smells like wine,
Oh my gosh,
It's turpentine!

Information About Lincoln Lincoln

This is a "jump rope" song. Kids would jump over rope in the playground to this song.

A BuSongs fan named James wrote us an email to provide this historical note about the song: I first heard this jump rope rhyme in central Wisconsin around 1950, with "Hitler" substituted for "Lincoln". I don't know how widespread this usage was during and after WWII. One other memory of this rhyme: it was followed by the question "How many minutes will he live?', then a count of how many times the jumper could skip without missing. Very interesting James - thanks for writing in and sharing this with us!
