NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
De ole hen she cackled, Git great long yaller laigs. She swaller down de oats, But I don't git no aigs.
De ole hen she cackled, She cackled in de lot, De nex' time she cackled, She cackled in de pot.
I LOVE SOMEBODY
I loves somebody, yes, I do;
An' I wants somebody to love me too.
Wid my chyart an' oxes stan'in'
'roun', Her pretty liddle foot needn' tetch
de groun'.
I loves somebody, yes, I do, Dat randsome, handsome, Sticka-
mastew. Wid her reddingoat an' waterfall, She's de pretty liddle gal dat beats
'em all.
