NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
Aw!
Git 'way, black man, You jes haint fine; I'se done quit foolin' Wid de nappy-headed kind.
Say?
Stan' back, black man! Cain't you see Dat a kinky-headed chap Hain't nothin' side o' me?
NEGROES NEVER DIE
Nigger! Nigger never die!
He gits choked on Chicken pie.
Black face, white shiny eye. Nigger! Nigger!
Nigger! Nigger never knows! Mashed nose, an' crooked toes; Dat's de way de Nigger goes. Nigger! Nigger!
Nigger! Nigger always sing; Jump up, cut de Pidgeon's wing; Whirl, an' give his feet a fling. Nigger! Nigger!
