Sam Johnson's Colored Cake Walk.
Copyright, 1883, by William A. Pond & Co.
Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

Sam Johnson is de sexton of Zion's Bethel church;
Oh, come along, you children, don't hang back in de lurch;
Hear de harp and de flute, Sam'el Johnson beats de big bass drum;
Hear de horn and de fid'-oh, tell all de neighbors to cornel
Dar's a cake all full of raisins, and dat's de raisin why
We're assembled here together; to win dat cake we'll try.

Chorus.
All around the room we're waltzing, ladies and gents so shy,
With steps so majestic! oh, my! on, dear! oh, white folks, it's no use to try;
Dis music would set you dreaming, lovingly sigh and talk;
We'll dance till the morning is beaming at Sam Johnson's colored cake walk.

We children have our pleasure in harm'ny sweet and mild;
Oh, come along, dear papa, and watch your little child;
Hear de harp and de flute, Sam'el Johnson beats de big bass drum;
Hear de horn and de fid'-oh, tell all de neighbors to cornel
Be careful of your footsteps, and always point your toe;
Tread lightly on de carpet; do try to be jus' so.- Chorus.

Dar's ginger And dar's citron; dar's pruens full of juice;
All in dis cake called angel; oh, cut dese children loose!
near de harp and de flute, Sam'el Johnson beats de big bass drum;
Hear de horn and de fid'-oh, tell all de neighbors to come!
As gently as a feather, or the falling of the snow,
Dese children walk together; you could not ax for mo'.-Chorus.

Der's Georgy and der's Samuel, dar's Julia, Jane and Ad,
With cousin Joe and Lemuel all smiling at dere dad;
Hear de harp and de flute, Sam'el Johnson beats de big bass drum;
Hear de horn and de fid'-oh, tell all de neighbors to come!
Now, children, don't you tarry, keep moving wide awake,
If home you wish to carry Sam Johnson's citron cake.- Chorus.
