NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
MY FOLKS AND YOUR FOLKS
If you an' yo' folks Likes me an' my folks, Lak me an' my folks, Likes you an' yo' folks; You's never seed folks, Since folks 'as been folks, Like you an' yo' folks, Lak me an' my folks.
LITTLE SLEEPING NEGROES
One liddle Nigger a-lyin' in de bed; His eyes shet an' still, lak he been dead.
Two liddle Niggers a-lyin' in de bed; A-snorin' an' a-dreamin' of a table spread.
Three liddle Niggers a-lyin' in de bed; Deir heels cracked open lak shorten' bread.
Four liddle Niggers a-lyin' in de bed; Dey'd better hop out, if dey wants to git fed!
