Blackeyes and turnip greens on New Year's day.
That's what we should eat, or so they say.
With pork chops or ham hocks glazed with honey.
Eating all this is supposed to bring you money.
This is tradition in the South where I live,
to eat such a meal, but this secret I give.
If you're eating this meal to gain riches untold.
Then my friend I'll confess, while waiting you'll grow old!
