MY BLACK MAMMY DID.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray
Words and Music by Barney Fagan.

Who toted me round, a little pickaninny kid?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed she did.
Who always used to keep the "lasses" and the sugar hid?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed.
Who never failed to find me lots of work to do?
Bend me 'cross her knee And make me wait till she "got thro'?"
With a mighty shingle, beat a warm tattoo?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed, singing:

Chorus.
Hilo my ding, hilo my done,
Hilo my ding, hilo my dong,
My ding done, hilo my ding dong da!

Who used to wake me from my slumber 'fore de break of day?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed she did.
Who used to choke me off, and never let me have my way?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed.
Who was it followed me when I went into town.
When I was of age and making love to Susie Brown?
Caught me kissing her, and made me quickly kiss the ground?
My black mammy did, Did she? Yes, indeed, pinging:- Chorus.

Who used to make me feed the pigs, and little chickens, too?
My black mummy did. Did she? Yes, indeed she did.
Then turn the hose on me for want of something else to do?
My black mammy did. Did she? Yes, indeed.
Who locked me in the house, and nailed the window down?
Made me sit and cross my legs for hours upon the ground,
Every blessed time a circus happened into town?
My black mummy did. Did she? Yes, indeed, singing:- Chorus.

Who used to fry the chicken, hominy and bacon strips?
My black mammy did. Did she? Yes, indeed she did.
And roast a barbecue to make a nigger smack his lips?
My black mammy did. Did she? Yes, indeed.
Who used to shout in Zion's church, and loudly say:
"Praise unto the Lamb, I'm gwine to glory right away;"
Used to get religion ev'ry minute in the day?
My black mammy did. Did she? Yes, indeed, singing: Chorus.

Who used to make me go to bed without my supper meal?
My black mummy did. Did she? Yes, indeed she did.
That was because, like niggers, ev'ry chance I got I'd steal.
My black mammy did. Did she? Yes, indeed.
Who placed the darning-needle point above the ground,
Right on mammy's chair, and laughed to see her sitting down,
Then who "flew de coop" and never afterwards was found?
Black pickaninny did. Did he? Yes indeed, singing:- Chorus.
