DON'T BET YOUR MONEY ON DE SHANGHAI
2  I go to de fair for to see de funny fowls,
De double-headed pigion and de one-eyed owls; De old lame •goose wid no web "between his .toes, He kills himself a laughing when de Shanghai crows.
3   De Shanghai's tall but his appetite is small,
He'll only swallow cbry thing that he can overhaul; Four bags of wheat just as certain as you're born, A bushel of potatoes and a tub full of corn.
DOWN AMONG DE CANE-BRAKES
