Oh! I've seen in my time some very funny folks,
But the funniest of all I know.
Is a colored individual, as sure as you're alive,
As black as any black coon ;
You may talk until you're tired, but you'll never get a word
From this very funny, queer old coon ;
He's a knock-kneed, double-jointed, hunky-plunky moke,
And he's happy when he whistles this tune:-(Whistles.)

Oh, lie's got a pair of lips, like a pound of liver split,
And a nose like an injun rubber shoe,
He's a limpy, happy, chuckle-headed, huckleberry nig,
And he whistles like a happy killy-loo;
He's an independent, free-and-easy, fat-and-greasy ham,
With a cranium like a big baboon;
Oh, I never heard him talk to anybody in my life,
But he's happy when he whistles this tune :-(Whistles.)

Oh, he'd whistle in the morning, through the day and through the night,
And he'd whistle like the devil going to bed.
Oh, he'd whistle like a locomotive engine in his sleep,
And lie whistled when his wife was dead;
One day a fellow hit him with a brick upon the mouth,
And his Jaw swelled up like a balloon,
Now he goes along shaking like a monkey in a fit,
And this is how he whistles that tune :-(Whistles)
