Blue Tail Fly, Burl Ives.... a live performance. Interesting. When did the PC era actually begin? The vinyl records use the word "Boss." This version is (more)* traditional, and also very enjoyable with the audience participation.  *The Blue Tail Fly comes from the mid-Nineteenth Century and was a song used in minstrel shows.  Black dialect, as it was done in the Minstrel Era would be traditional.
