OH, SEA BASS.
Twas Sambo Sip the barrow man,
War bound along the street And long and loud de fish he call,
To eb'ry one he meet— And eb'ry one dat hear de noise
Stare at he as him. pass Because he hab de loudest voice
Dat bawls out—Oh !. Sea. Bass. L
Oh ! Shad and Flouders too he cry
An many oder fish, And swear dey be as fresh and good
As eber went on dish. He troll'd he barrow near de curb,
And neber went too fast, For fear he loose he customer—
He ball out—Oh ! Sea Bass.
An eb'ry one dat hear he voice,
Tink he fish must be good, He customer, at least tink so,
Because de'ball so loud. And when a Catholick he spy,
Dat lub to go to Mass, On Friday as he pass him by,
He bawls out—Oh ! Sea Bass.
Success attend old Sambo's bones* Whereber he do roam,
