Lay down the freemasonry
A humourous juxtaposition of jive slang with period illustration, the source of inspiration appears to simply be the child's fez, There is no intentional anti-masonry.
"Lay down the freemasonry" refers to expressions such as "Lay down the hand", meaning to act aggressively. "Ain't no thing", generally spelt "thang" means that the topic is unimportant or "no big deal". "Widow's son" is a contraction of an expression called the masonic grand hailing sign of distress. "Knowmsayn" is a contraction of a common question "Know what I'm saying?" used rhetorically to complete narrative statements.
