OH, MY! HOW WE POSE.
Copyright, 1884. by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Words by Ed. Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

For lovely belles and charming swells
Sixth avenue take- the cream;
On Sunday night, when skies are bright,
These darkies can he seen
Meandering so gracefully
To while the time away;
We do the grand, with cane in hand,
Oh, my! how we pose.

Chorus.
Oh, gaily we move at a fair or hall.
Such delicious music for one and all;
Our moments of leisure we while away,
Oh, my! oh, dear! how we pose.

We never grieve on Sunday eve.
For that's our meeting night;
With sweethearts dear, so grand and proud.
Oh, my! ain't we a sight?
Our ladies may be black or brown,
No matter, they're au fait;
We do the grand, with cane in hand,
Oh, my! how we pose.-Chorus.

Some colored girls are fond of pearls
And ribbons very loud;
The dazzle is bewildering,
While mingling 'mong de crowd.
These charmers, fair, quite debonair.
Recherche, not too gay;
We do the " grand, with cane in hand,
Oh, my! how we pose.-Chorus.
