NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
PRECIOUS THINGS
Hol' my rooster, hoi' my hen,
Pray don't tetch my * Gooshen Ben'.
Hoi' my bonnet, hoi' my shawl, Pray don't tetch my waterfall.
Hoi' my han's by de finger tips,
But pray don't tetch my sweet liddle lips.
HE LOVES SUGAR AND TEA
Mistah Buster, he loves sugar an' tea. Mistah Buster, he loves candy. Mistah Buster, he's a Jim-dandy! He can swing dem gals so handy.
Charlie's up an' Charlie's down. Charlie's fine an' dandy. Ev'ry time he goes to town, He gits dem gals stick candy.
Dat Niggah, he love sugar an' tea. Dat Niggah love dat candy. * Grecian Bend.
