Sipping Cider Through a Straw

The prettiest girl (Echo), I ever saw, (Echo)
Was sipping cider through a straw
The prettiest girl (Echo), I ever saw, (Echo)
Was sipping cider through a straw

I asked of her, what you doin that fer
a sippin' cider through a straw (Echo)
She said to me, why don't you know that
sippin' cider is all I know (Echo)


I asked her if, (Echo) she'd show me how, (Echo)
To sip that cider through a straw
I asked her if, (Echo) she'd show me how, (Echo)
To sip that cider through a straw

Then cheek to cheek, and jaw to jaw
We sipped that cider through a straw
Every now and then, the straw would slip
I'd sip some cider from her lip

The parson came to her backyard
A sipping cider from a straw
And now I have a mother-in-law
And fourteen kids to call me Pa

The moral of this little tale
Is sip your cider from a pail!
