LITTLE SISTER, WON'T YOU MARRY
ME?
Liddle sistah in de barn, jine de weddin'. Youse de sweetest liddle couple dat I ever did see. Oh Love! Love! Ahms all 'round me! Say, liddle sistah, won't you marry me?
Oh step back, gal, an' don't you come a nigh me, Wid all dem sassy words dat you say to me. Oh Love! Love! Ahms all 'roun' me! Oh liddle sistah, won't you marry me?
RAISE A "RUCUS" TO-NIGHT
Two liddle Niggers all dressed in white, (Raise a
rucus to-night.) Want to go to Heaben on de tail of a kite. (Raise
a rucus to-night.) De kite string broke; dem Niggers fell; (Raise a
rucus to-night.) Whar dem Niggers go, I hain't gwineter tell.
(Raise a rucus to-night.)
