'WAY DOWN IN CAIRO
2  Sometimes de nigga's life is sad,
Sometimes his life is gay, When de work don't come too-hard He's singin' all de day.
3  Now we libs on de fat ob de land,
Now we libs on de lean, When we bab no cake to bake We sweep de kitchen clean.
4  Massa bought a bran new coat
And hung it on de wall, Dis nigga's guine to take dat coat, And wear it to de ball.
5  All de ladies in de land,
And all de gemmcn, too, Am guine to hear de darkey band, And see what dey can do.
WILLIE, WE HAVE MISSED YOU
