We're Glad to Hear the News.
Copyright, 1890, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Joe Hart.

De Gospel preacher, Henry Brown, is gwine to wed to-day,
We're glad to hear de news;
The colored population, will be thar in grand array,
We're glad to hear de news.
Miss Ann Eliza Brackson is de lady he's to wed,
We're glad to hear de news:
She's very highly educated, 'least I've heard it said,
We're glad to near de news.

De church-bells will he ringing, de darkies will be winging,
De little children singing, to drive away the blues;
De old church-gate a-creaking, de little sheep a-bleating.
To welcome massa's wedding-day, we're glad to hear de news.

Here's gwine to be a wedding feast of possum, cake and wine,
We're glad to hear de news;
De darkies dey will light on it like bees In Summer time,
We're glad to hear ue news.
Ole Ebenezer Clay will call de figgers at de ball,
We're glad to hear de news;
And razors will be left at-home, dey won't be used at all,
We're glad to hear de news.-Chorus.
