I believe of don't throw me in that briar patch fame. I'd have to look to see if Briar Rabbit and Uncle Remus are connected but I think so.
At any rate, Uncle Remus then showed up in a song off of Apostrophe' by Frank Zappa.
There was this group out in California in the 70s, The Lawn Jockey Liberation Front, who would steal the statues off of people's lawns. You know, the little black guys holding a lantern. Kind of silly.
I think FrankieD was a member...
Whoa, are we moving too slow?
Have you seen us, Uncle Remus?
We look pretty sharp in these clothes
(Yes, we do)
Unless we get sprayed with a hose
It ain't bad in the day
If they squirt it your way
'Cept in the wintah, when it's froze
And it's hard if it hits, on your nose
(On your nose)
Just keep your nose
To the grindstone they say
Will that redeem us, Uncle Reemus?
I can't wait til mah 'fro is full grown
I'll just throw away my doo-rag at home
I'll take a drive to
Just before dawn
And knock the little jockeys
Off the rich peoples lawn
And before they get up
I'll be gone
(I'll be gone)
Before they get up
I'll be knockin' the jockeys off the lawn
(Down in the dew)
