Parrish, p. 114, "Stickit Ball a Hack'" (1 text)
NOTES: The current description is based on the Parrish text. Parrish writes, "... this curious song is half spoken in a lively fashion, to rhythmic hand clapping. When the verse is finished then [you do the chorus]."
Parrish has no verses but, I assume, they are like "my mother bought me x," "If x won't work then ..." - BS
