FOLK SONG
White folks, white folks
Want to shine, Drink a lot of whiskey,
Drink a lot of wine; And white folks, white folks
Don't take it ill, Ef when you talkó
I done keep still.
White folks, white folks
You am proud, You done talk big
And you done talk loud; And white folks, white folks
Don't take it ill, Ef when you talkó
I done keep still.
White folks, white folks
Make a lot of noise, Talk about their pleasures,
Talk about their joys; And white folks, white folks
Don't take it ill, Ef when you talkó
I done keep still.
