Well now that’s interesting… The original lyrics came from civil war era song about substance abuse:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldier%27s_Joy_(fiddle_tune)

Twenty-five cents for whiskey, twenty-five cents for beer

Twenty-five cents for morphine get me out of here

chorus: I’m my momma’s pride and joy (3X)

Sing you a song called the soldier’s joy

Grasshopper sitting on a sweet potato vine (3X)

Along come a chicken and he’s say ‘you’re mine’.

I’m gonna get you there don’t you want to go? (3X)

All for the soldier’s joy

Chicken in a bread pan scratching that dough

Granny does your dog bite no child no… [6]

All for the soldier’s joy7
