Dancing on de Kitchen Floor.
Copyright, 1880, by White, Smith & Co.
By James Bland.

Oh, the darkies all will have a jubilee,
Such a gathering there never was before,
Oh, how happy every one will be,
As we dance upon the kitchen floor.
There'll be walking for the cake, all the ladies hearts we'll break,
When we all commence to do the promenade;
Betsey Brown and Julia Lee will pass the coffee and the tea,
Down to the darkies' jubilee.

Tell the children all to come, black-eyed Sue and Hannah Gum,
Music ringing, darkies singing, every one agree;
Grease the floor and close the window, don't forget to tell Malinda
That we all are getting ready for the jubilee.

All the ladies will be dressed so very neat,
Everybody will look very nice and clean,
When we darkies promenade the street,
Everything will be just like a dream.
There is dandy Dick and Pete, they will exercise their feet,
And the yaller gals will do the same, you see,
We will dance until the morn just as sure as you are born,
Down to the darkies' jubilee. - Chorus.
