Yes; but

This is a song suddenly remembered after years and years. It's said to date from 1908 and to be the chorus of a stage song (performed by Julian Eltinge of Cohan & Harris's minstrel revival show). This song is also known, apparently, as "Caution" and "The Bathing Song."

"Mother, may I go out to swim?"
"Yes, my darling daughter.
"Hang your clothes on a hickory limb,
"But don't go near the water."
