Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
At last the supper's ready,
At last the work is done, And raging fast and furious
Went on the nigger fun; The coons began to grumble
And the coons began to jaw, But Mandy says I'm coming
When I lock this kitchen door.
For Mandy knew them niggers
And Mandy knew them coons, She knew them possums baking
Would start them nigger croons; So let them niggers holler,
Said Mandy with a roar, And tell them coons I'm coming
When I lock this kitchen door.
AUNT JEMIMA
Aunt Jemima laughed so loud She looked just like a thunder cloud, Her mouth would open like a door And then there came an awful roar; It used to all the babies wake, It used to all the ceiling shake, And I'm laughing, laughing yet At Aunt Jemima's cheeks so wet.
