Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.
Susie
Pickin' up paw-paws, puttin' 'em in her pockets,
Pickin' up paw-paws, puttin' 'em in her pockets,
Pickin' up paw-paws, puttin' 'em in her pockets,
Way down yonder in the paw-patch.
Susie
Come on, children, let's go find her,
Come on, children, let's go find her,
Come on, children, let's go find her,
Way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.

"The pawpaw is the largest edible fruit that is native to the United States. Pawpaws are indigenous to 26 states in the U.S., in a range extending from northern Florida to southern Ontario and as far west as eastern Nebraska. They have provided delicious and nutritious food for Native Americans, European explorers and settlers, and wild animals. They are still being enjoyed in modern America, chiefly in rural areas. Most enthusiasts agree that the best way to enjoy pawpaws is to eat them raw, outdoors, picked from the tree when they are perfectly ripe. The unique flavor of the fruit resembles a blend of various tropical flavors, including banana, pineapple, and mango. Pawpaw's beautiful, maroon colored flowers appear in the spring, and the clusters of fruit ripen in the fall.
