NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
PRETTY POLLY ANN
I'se gwineter marry, if I can.
I'se gwineter marry pretty Polly Ann.
I axed Polly Ann, fer to marry me. She say she's a-lookin' fer a Nigger dat's free.
Pretty Polly Ann's jes dressed so fine! I'll bet five dollars she hain't got a dime.
Pretty Polly Ann's jes a-puttin' on airs, She won't notice me, but nobody cares.
I'll drop Polly Ann, a-lookin' lak a crane; I 'spec's I'll marry Miss Lize Jane.
