Negro Poems, Melodies
The parson man was praying
And praying long and loud, And praying to dem niggers
In that congregation crowd; The parson man am hungry
And the church rent must be found, So don't forget these prayers
When the basket comes around.
And each and every nigger
With pity in his eyes, Fingered in his pockets
And turned them to the skies; You heard the benediction
And the ticking of the clock, When someone shouted chickens
And stampeded all the flock.
THE EAGLE AND THE ROOSTER
The eagle is a dandy bird
He sits upon his perch, Just like a flock of pigeons
In the belfry of a church; But when that eagle starts to scream
And flap his wings in air, Excuse me foh a minute
But I'd rather not be there.
