210              NEGRO DIALECT VERSES
To deck my yaller pearl. When I come back, my honey,
In dat sweet bye an' bye, Lak bees into de country,
We'll tek up wings an' fly.
We'll git er cabin, Rosy,
Down by de rivah's side, An' you will be my honey
An' my Alabama bride; An' dar we'll live as happy
As 'gators in de sloo, An' lovin' one ernother's jes'
'Bout all we'll hatter do.
RAMBO'S SERENADE.
Mighty pooty gal down dar at owah house,
En she ain't er gwine to stay ve'y long; I'll steal to her do', jes' still ez er mouse,
En sing her a mighty pooty song. I'll tell her in de song how I love her,
En chune up de banjo sof en low, 'Twell she think all de twinklin' stars above her
Is jine in de chorus wid her beau.
