De higher up de monkey goes,
De furder he gets he shows his toes,
He peel de apple an eat de skin,
He break my head and crack' my shin.
Den, oh lord gals, &c
I went to a ball an danced all nigh-, Early in de morning dey put out the light, One gal said dat her shoes was tore, Dancing on de sandy floor.
Den, oh lord gals, &cĄ
DE POOR NIGGA BOY.
A Parody on the " Bowld Sojer Boy " written ana sung by Mr. E. Deaves, of the celebrated Band of Virginia Serenaders.
Oh dar's not a beast dat's cunning,
Like a coon dat hates de gunning
Ob de poor nigga boy. Wedder up or down he go Sure he know he's his foe, He hates de heel or toe
Ob de poor niggar boy. Dare's not a woods he goes through, Or ever pokes his nose through, De coon he sees I spose through
De branches as he swing.
