WORK-SONGS
1-33
I'M A NACHEL-BAWN REACHER
Chorus
Fma nachel-bawn readier, Jus' a nachel-bawn readier, Jus' a nachel-bawn readier, Dat's no lie.
Once I knew a man by de name of Freeze, Among de gals he was all de cheese. He was twice as frosty as his name, He ever lacked de letter dat never came.
Chorus
Alas, pore Freeze got in a fight, De coons drew deir razors an* carved him right. Dey parted his body from his breath somehow, It cuts no ice where he is now.
Chorus I'm a nachel-bawn freezer, Jus' a nachel-bawn freezer, Jus' a nachel-bawn freezer, Dat's no lie.
