American Ballads and Folk Songs
Oh, de white gal have a silk petticoat, Oh, de yaller gal have de same 5 Oh, de black gal have no petticoat a-tall, But she git dar jes' de same.
Oh, de white gal ride in a parlor car, Oh, de yaller gal try to do de same 5 Oh, de black gal ride in de Jim Crow car, But she git dar jes' de same.
Oh, de white gal have a high-heel shoe, Oh, de yaller gal try to have de samej Oh, de black gal have no shoe a-tall, But she git dar jes' de same.
Oh, de white gal have a nice long ha'r, Oh, de yaller gal try to have de same} Oh, de black gal have a one-cent wig, But he her ha'r jes' de same.
Oh, a white gal eats de cake an' pie, Oh, de yaller gal try to do de samej Oh, de black gal eats de ashy cake, But she's eatin' jes' de same.
Oh, a white gal sleeps in a bed, Oh, a yaller gal try to do de same 5 Oh, a black gal sleeps on de flo', But she's sleepin' jes' de same.
Oh, de white gal smell like sweet perfume, Oh, de yaller gal try to smell de samej Oh, de black gal smell like a billy goat, But he her smell jes' de same.
