Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

I'm a high-toned darkey wid de eel-skin hair,
And summer-colored trousers, very light;
A big white spark in my bosom dar,
A-shining like a 'lectric light.

When I go on de avenue, it's how-de, how-de-do?
It's dar you'll see, just after tea, dey take off their hats to me.

Den it's hats off, hats off, hats off to me,
I'm eighteen carat, away up in C;
Up town or down town, 'round town or cross town,
Hats off, hats off, hats off to me.

I've a black silk beaver, and it fits my head,
A satin umbrella, very neat;
A gold-headed cane and a necktie red,
When strolling up And down de street.-Refrain & Chorus.

Oh, I bow to ladies with a delsart smile,
And hold a conversation superfine;
The real coon swell, oh, they take my style,
For fashion I'm a walking sign.-Refrain & Chorus.
