American Ballads and Folk Songs
OP nigger Shakleton in bed yit, Here I am smokin' my third cigaritt.
Refrain:
Aincha gwine, aincha gwine, boys, aincha gwine?
Spoken Come an' see what you got on yo' breakfas' table:
Ram, ham, chicken, an' mutton;
Ef you don' come now, you won' git nuttin'.
Here come a toad frog, got grea' big eyes. Good God-a'mighty, dese niggers won' rise.
This ain' no place to collar no nod, White folks wants you on de lumber yard.
White man call you, you come all right j Nigger man call you, you want to fight.
Little bell call you, big bell warn you.
Ef you don' come now, I'm gonna break in on you.
Aincha gwine, aincha gwine, boys, aincha gwine? REASON I STAY ON JOB SO LONG*
