NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
MASTER KILLED A BIG BULL
Mosser killed a big bull, Missus cooked a dish full, Didn't give poor Nigger a mouf full. Humph! Humph!
Mosser killed a fat lam'. Missus brung a basket, An' give poor Nigger de haslet. Eh-eh! Eh-eh!
Mosser killed a fat hog Missus biled de middlin's, An' give poor Nigger de chitlin's. Sho! Sho!
YOU HAD BETTER MIND MASTER
'Way down yon'er in 'Possum Trot, (In ole Miss'sip' whar de sun shines hot) Dere hain't no chickens an' de Niggers eats c'on; You hain't never see'd de lak since youse been bo'n, You'd better mln' Mosser an' keep a stiff lip, So's you won't git sol' down to ole Miss'sip'.
