  • Don't go to gibsom cross the river
    The devil is hungry
    The devil is sweet
    If you are soft then you will shiver
    They hang the alley cats on gibsom street
    I wish my baby were forbidden
    I wish my world be struck by sleet
    I wish to keep my mirror hidden
    To hide the eyes that looked on gibsom street
    There is a man he knows where I'm going
    Gave me a strawberry to eat
    I sucked its juices never knowing
    That I would sleep that night on gibsom street Writer/s: LAURA NYRO
