HANNAH, GET THE BROOM.
Copyright, 1889, by Spaulding & Kornder.
Words and Music' by Charles H. Sheffer.
There's gwine to be a weddin',
And we are to be wed;
Oh. won't we have a jolly time,
You just hear what we said.
Der'll be Julia Johnson,
And cross-eyed Hannah Green;
And all the coons for miles around,
At the weddin' will be seen.
Hannah, get the broom, Hannah, get the broom,
Sweep our sidewalk nice and clean, Hannah, get the broom;
Hannah, get the broom, preacherman is comin' to-night
To wed us in de light of the moon.
After the weddin' is over
We'll have a Jolly spree;
Eating cake and drinking wine,
How happy we will be.
John Anderson will play the fiddle,
And act just like a loon;
And all the girls will do the buck
While Hannah gets the broom.-CHORUS.
