Words by Ed. Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

Go bar de news, dear children, black people, young and old;
Oh, come 'long to dat gath'ring like sheep into de fold.
Go throw away your burdens, and let your hearts be light,
We're welcomed in de parlor on massa's wedding night.
Den forward and caper, cross over, den hoe down;
Oh, step high, good ladies, go turn de old man round.
Oh, swing on, keep winging to de left and to de right;
Oh, let me be at de jubilee on massa's wedding night.

Oh, bring along dem flowers, dem lilies from de bed,
And don't forget dem roses, dem white ones and de red.
Oh, hail de bride and bridegroom, and shout with all your might,
We're welcomed in de parlor on massa's wedding night.- Chorus.

Bow low to dat old preacher, bow low to every guest,
And don't forget on Sundays you dress up in your best.
And when you reach dat meeting, oh, pray with all your might,
We're welcomed in de parlor on massa's wedding night.-Chorus.
