If you go out a-walkin' wid yer Lulu in de lane,
And you want to keep yer Lulu baby dry:
When you see de clouds a-comin, and if it begins to rain.
Why, hist yer umbrella good and high.
Hist yer umbrella, hist yer umbrella, hist yer umbrella good and high;
If you don't want to be melted, hon', when it begins to rain,
Don't forget to hist yer umbrella.-(Dance.)
Dis world's a pow'ful wicked place for good folks to be in,
And I guess dat we'll be washed away bime-by:
Dar's a hurricane a-comin', and it's gwine be rainin' sin,
So hist yer umbrella good and high.- Chorus.
When dese ole bones am weary, and I lay dis burden down
In de sun-kissed over yonder, by and by:
I'm gwine to have a halo, and put on a golden crown,
And hist my umbrella in de sky.- Chorus.
