Hambone hambone have ya heard papa's gonna by
You a mockin' bird and if that mockin' bird don't sing
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring and if that
Diamond does not shine papa's gonna buy you a
Fishin' line hambone hambone where ya been around
The world and I'm going again.

We as kids use to hambone. this was back in 1940 to 1945 or so. I'm now 82 and still enjoy it. We use to sit on the steps of our home in Minneapolis MN. and just sing and hambone till it got dark and the rest of the kids would go home.
