I neber see de like since I been born
When a big buck nigger wid his sea boots on,
Says: "Johnny come down to Hilo,
Poor old man! O, wake her, o, shake her!
O wake dat gal wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man!"
2. I lub a little gal across de sea,
She's a 'Badian beauty, and she says to me:
3. O, was you ebber down in Mobile Bay,
Where dey screws cotton on a summer day?
4. Did you ebber see de old plantation boss,
And de long-tail filly and de big black hoss?
