Flickan vid Bellmansro Humoristen Kalle Nämndeman sjunger "Flickan vid Bellmansro" i en inspelning från maj 1923. Mudcat Cafe has this:
I go down to Seven Corners,
Where Salvation Army play,
One dem vomans come to me
This is what dat voman say:

She say, "Will you work for Yesus?"
I say, "How much Yesus pay?"
She say, "Yesus don't pay nothing"
I say, "I won't work today."
