NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
Beautiful Marie, the East Indian!
You beautiful woman, you're good enough
for me. Papa is an African. Mamma is a beautiful East Indian. Beautiful Marie, the East Indian! You beautiful woman, you're good enough
for me.

That tried to play a fiddle.
He struck it here, and he struck it there,
And he struck it in the middle.
