THE NIGGER_AND THE BEE.
Copyright, 1888, by S. T. Gordon & Son.
Words and Music by Charles H. Sheffer.

Did you ever hear tell of the nigger and the bee!
Yes I did, yes I did;"
I know the little creature and felt him, too, you see,
Yes I did, yes I did.
Did you ever see a nigger try to catch a bee at night?
Yes I did, yes I did;
He ran like the devil when the bee begun to bite.
Yes be did, yes be did.

Chorus.
Then the nigger he said to the bee:
"There's a sight in the garden for to see.
You suck the flowers and get all the honey,
I lay around and get all the money;"
Den de nigger he thought he'd be funny,
He robbed the little bee of its honey.
The bee laid for him-oh, didn't they have fun?
My goodness gracious: how that nigger did run;
The bee, the bee, that little honey bee
Stung that nigger so bad dat nigger could hardly for to see (The see).
The bee, the bee, dat little honey bee
Stung dat nigger so bad dat nigger could hardly for to see (The see).-Dance

Did you ever see a nigger take the honey from the comb?
Yes I did, yes I did;
And then all of a sudden didn't the bees begin to come?
Yes they did, yes they did;
And didn't mister king bee try to start a little muss?
Yes he did, yes he did;
But the queen bee stepped in then and she stopped the little fuss.
Yes she did, yes she did.-Chorus.
