Climbing Up to Heaven on a Moonbeam
Copyright, 1896, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by James Thornton.

There was once a little coon, just the color of maroon,
And he climbed up to Heaven on a moonbeam;
He got up as far as Mars, then got lost among the stars,
As he climbed up to Heaven on a moonbeam.
He grabbed on to a cloud that was sailing through the air;
He looked up at the moon, saying, "There's watermelon there;
I hope the man inside won't forget to keep my share.
While I climb up to Heaven on a moonbeam."

Come along, darkies, bring along your tambourines,
Throw away your dice in the golden stream;
Dice won't look nice for to carry into Paradise,
Climbing up to Heaven on a moonbeam.

When be reached the" milky way," to old Peter he did say,
"I have climbed up to Heaven on a moonbeam."
But old Peter said, ' I fear, there're no nigger angels here;
You can climb back again upon a moonbeam."
The poor little coon never thought of that before;
He saw some nigger angels shooting "crap" upon the floor.
When Peter fell asleep He got in through a side door;
So he climbed up to Heaven on a moonbeam.- Chorus.
