DANCING IN DE BARN.
Copyright, 1878, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Oh! we'll meet at de ball in de evening, kase I love to pass de time
Wid Clementina Cositina, and my Angeniima Mina May;
Den we'll balance all to one another, like de ship dat's going 'round de horn;
Den we'll meet you, yes, we'll greet you, while dancing in de barn.
As we move so gracefully, we're as happy as can be;
Den swine your partners all together,
Kase now's de time for you to learn.
Banjo ringing, niggers tuning and dancing In de barn.
Den we's off to work in de morning, singing as we go out to de field,
Picking cotton, or else forgotten, except to see how much de ground do yield;
De black folks are happy while together, it's funny for to hear 'em tell a yarn.
About a lover wid kisses smother, while dancing in de barn.-Chorus.
