topsey's doctrine.                          43
There's the "Life of Jeff Davis"
You can buy that very cheap; And the " Jokes by Uncle Abraham"
Are very hard to beat: And song-books by the thousand,
If you feel inclined to sing; And the "Life of John C. Heenan,"
Who fought the British King.
The " Forty Thieves," etc.
Then there is "Little Mac's Report"
About this war it reads, And tells you of our soldiers,
And the patriotic deeds Performed by McClellan
And his gallant Union band, "Who mado the rebels " git"
At the battle of Antietam.                0
The " Forty Thieves," etc.
TOPSEY'S DOCTRINE. /         Sung by J. T. Boycb.
Oh, I is the gal for dancing jigs, And cutting up all sorts of rigs; But still I know how to behave, Although I'm nothin' but a slave: But I think you'll all agree I'se better off a slave than free. About hard times I never think, Because I is always lots to eat and drink.
Chorus.
Dem Abolitionists, dat rave
About de freedom of de slave,
Had better let us all alone,                   
And mind deir poor white folks at home.
