You can see each skedaddling rover
Eeturning day by day,
And creeping to their homes.
Now, white folks, etc.
ME. PER- COON.
(As performed, with unbounded applause, by Hooleys Minstrels.)
Oohe, darkeys, ebery one, Dat lubs a little fun—
Chorus—For ole Mr. Per Coon's waitin' down at de brim­stone corner;
Let's go in wid good will, Ole Fader Time to kill—
Chorus—For de gals couldn't wait for de same ole Coon till arternoon.
De gals am on de green, Wid bib and tucker clean—
Chorus—For ole Mr. Per Coon's waitin' down at de brim­stone corner.
A han'kerchief so red Tied on deir woolly head—
Chorus—For de gals couldn't wait for de same ole Coon till ar^ernoon.

De jay-bird's on de limb; His eye shine like a June-bug—

It makes his gizzard wink; Oh, say, Mister Per Coon,
What'll you take to drink ?
Ole Clem must come along, To pat de Juba-song;
