American Old Time Song Lyrics: 26 Coon Dat Carried De Razor
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 26
COON DAT CARRIED DE RAZOR.
Went to a ball de oder night,
At Susie Simkin's hut;
Whar de coons all cany razors,
And how dem niggers cut.
Horace Jinks got in a row
With slow-foot Jimmy Frazier;
"Take care! " squealed out old Sallie Gum,
"Dat coon has got a razor."
De coons did fly, de gals did cry
For poor old Johnny Frazier;
Dey nearly cut dat coon to death,
Dat coon dat had de razor.
Dey cut poor Johnny's coat-tail off,
Dey carved him to de fat;
Dey chopped his ear clean off his head,
Den cut his beaver hat.
Aunt Hannah said: "For gracious sake,
You'll kill poor Johnny Frazier;"
But he never noticed her at all,
But slashed 'round wid dat razor.-Chorus.
Coon come flying down de stairs,
Gals all hollered murder;
Johnny Frazier he fell down,
He couldn't fall no further.
Horace he rushed for de mokes,
And old policeman Hazier
Said: "I ain't gwine to take dat coon,
For he has got a razor. " -Chorus.
