-NEGRO DIALECT VERSES             203
Fur de bias' on de bugle er de buzzin' in de air, No, mer honey true; no, mer honey. Dat mek me say whut I do.
Dat mek me say whut I do, An' whut I say is true, I ain' love nobody 'tall but you So dat mek me say whut I do.
Dar ain' nobody I'se er lovin' but you,
Dat's true, dat's true, honey. Fur you is sweeter dan de honey in de dew,
Dat's true, dat's true, honey. You is mer lifeóa'mos' mer wife, Er I couldn' stan' de trouble, de worry an' de strifeó
No, mer honey true; no, mer honey.
Dat mek me say whut I do.
Won't you come erlong wid me, bright shinin' eyes ?
Tell me, tell me, honey. Dem eyes dat shines lak di'monds in de skies,
Tell me, tell me, honey. Down at yo' feet I begs, mer sweet, Take away de trouble an' mek life complete;
Do, mer honey true; do, mer honey.
Dat mek me say whut I do.
