Negro Poems, Melodies
POSSUM PIE
Carve that possum, Hannah
Carve that possum soon, For the pan am ready
And here am the spoon; Carve him in de quarters,
Carve him in de thigh, And carve that possum, Hannah
Foh a possum pie.
Carve that possum, Hannah
Carve the fat and lean, For that meat am the juiciest
That I have ever seen; Carve him in de quarters,
Carve him in de thigh, And carve that possum, Hannah
Foh a possum pie.
THE GRINNING NIGGER MAN
When you make a hoe cake
You want to make it quick, Stir it in the basin
And stir it with a stick; Bake it in the oven,
Bake it in a pan, And then just watch the antics
Of that grinning nigger man.
