Bring sally up
I bring sally down
Lift and squat
Gotta tear the ground

Old miss lucy's dead and gone
Left me here to weep and moan

If you hate it fold your arms
If you love it clap your hands

    I thought it was "twist and torque gonna tear the ground". I took "sally" to be the plow going up and down the field and ol miss lucy was the horse or ox that would normally pull the plow now dead, leaving the slave to pull the plow.

    @Busta950
    There is more than one version to this song. This song has been passed down in my family as my great-great-grandfather was alive when slaves were allowed. I have heard both versions and i personal like a mixture of both. Sorry to crash your moment.

    and 3. its last one squat got to tear the ground.

    The only change Moby made to the original song was Lucy to Ruth.
