NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
If you wants to bake a hoecake, To bake it good an' done; Jes' slap it on a Nigger's heel, An' hoi' it to de sun.
Dat snake, he bake a hoecake, An' sot de toad to mind it; Dat toad he up an' go to sleep, An' a lizard slip an' find it!
My mammy baked a hoecake,
As big as Alabamer.
She throwed it 'g'inst a Nigger's
head An' it ring jes' lak a hammer.
De way you bakes a hoecake,
In de ole Virginy 'tire;
You wrops it 'round a Nigger's
heel, An' hoi's it to de fire.
