MICHIE PREiVAL*
A satirical song of the Creole Negroes.
Michie Preval li donnin gran bal, Li Łe neg paye pou sauter in pe.
Dans Pecui vie la yave gran gala. Mo ere soual la ye te bien etonne.
Michie Preval li te Capitaine bal,
Et so coche, Louis te maitr' ceremonie.
Y'ave de negresse belles passe maitresse, Qui vole belbel dans Pormoire momselle.
"Comment, Sazou, te vole mo cuilotte?" "Non, no maitr', mo di vous zes prend bottes."
♦Words from Krehbiel's Aft-o-American Folk-Songs, tune from Allen, Ware, and Garrison's Slave Songs of the United, States.
