Negro Poems, Melodies
CHRISTMAS AM A COMIN*
All the day long—
I worry and fret, Something goes wrong
That I cannot forget But go away raincloud,
Go away fly— Christmas am a comin*
And I ain't going to cry.
All the day long—
I worry and fret, Something gwine to happen
Or I get in debt. But go away trouble
Go away sigh— Christmas am a comin'
And I ain't going to cry.
Christmas am a comin',
Comin' on the way, Christmas am a comin'
And tomorrow am the day. There's a possum in the cellar
And a porker in the sty— Christmas am a comin'
And I ain't going to cry.
