NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
WE ARE "ALL THE GO"
Yes! We's "All-de-go," boys; we's "All-de-go." Me an' my Lulu gal's "All-de-go." I jes' loves my sweet pretty liddle Lulu Ann, But de way she gits my money I cain't
hardly understan'. W'en she up an' call me "Honey!" I fer-
gits my name is Sam, An' I hain't got one nickel lef to git a me a dram.
Still: We's "All-de-go," boys; we's "All-de-go." Me an' my Lulu gal's "All-de-go." She's always gwine a-fishin', w'en she'd oughter not to go; An' now she's all a troubled wid de frostes
an' de snow. I tells you jes one thing dat I'se done
gone an' foun': De Nigs cain't git no livin' 'round de Co't House steps an' town.
