NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
BRIDLE UP A RAT
Bridle up er rat,
Saddle up er cat,
An' han' me down my big straw hat.
In come de cat,
Out go de rat,
Down go de baby wid 'is big straw hat.
MY LITTLE PIG
You see: I had a liddle pig, I fed 'im on slop; He got so fat Dat he almos' pop.
An' den: I tuck de liddle pig,
An' I rid 'im to school; He e't ginger cake, An' it tu'n 'im a fool.
But he grunt de lessons, An' keep all de rule, An' he make 'em all think Dat he learn in de cool.
