POPULAR SONGS. 105

Den I warn all you darkies not to lub her; If you do, she will cause you to blu-bber! So git out ob de way, an' remember what I
say— Ise gwan to marry ber myself some very fine day!
But now she's gwan for to leave me ! If she does, she will cruelly deceibe me! But to win her I will try, by de winkin5 ob de
eye; If she don't consent to marry, I will go away an' cry ! But I know dat she will not deceibe me, An' she is not a goin' for to leabe me ; So to hab a little fun, for de banjo I will run, An' I'll play dat merry tune—" Jenny, get your hoe cake done!"
Den I warn all you darkies, &c,
