Dance lyric

Pumke Sennar, with her baby, sings a ‘popular song’ from the dance ground.  It is similar to the lyric of the jerry-can band in Dance and Music, which goes as follows:

I was nearly bitten by the dog last night!
She spent a whole year with her mother
Oh me, oh my!
The free-woman in her white socks,
Just like an Ujang!

Why d’you question me with your eyes as though you know my name?

What are your feelings in your Liver?
Why does that lady go on waiting for her husband?

(War and Survival , p. 225)
