NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
HERE I STAND
Here I stan', raggity an' dirty; If you don't come kiss me, I'll run lak a tucky.
Here I stan' on two liddle chips, Pray, come kiss my sweet liddle lips.
Here I stan' crooked lak a horn;
I hain't had no kiss since I'se been born.
PIG TAIL
Run boys, run! De pig tail's done. If you don't come quick, You won't git none.
Pig ham's dere, Lakwise middlin's square; But dese great big parts Hain't no Nigger's bes' fare.
