Negro Poems, Melodies
LICKIN' THE GOAT
I saw a big nigger
Butting a mule, He butted him hot
And he butted him cool; And I heard him say
As he took off his coat, "You might lick a nigger
But you can't lick a goat."
He butted him black
And he butted him blue, And he almost butted
That mule in two; And I heard him say
As he put on his coat, "You might lick a nigger
But you can't lick a goat."
The mule he stand
And the mule he feel Jes' like a prisoner
When he steal; And he ought to know better
When he leave his cote, Not to go fooling
With a Billy Goat.
