Susan Brown is a colored gal, the sweetest I ever see;
Her honey boy he loved her so, an' she said dat she loved me;
Her cheeks were of an eb'ny hue, her teeth shone out like pearl;
But one day she got acquainted wid a moneyed coon, an' now I'se lost my girl.
Baby now has left her honey, honey, an' from me she's gone away,
Wid a coon wid lots o' money, money, dat is why I'm sad to-day;
My sweet thing, baby, now has left her honey, honey, an' from me she's gone
Wid a coon wid lots o" money, money, dat is why I'm sad to-day.
I'll tell you how dis moneyed coon come to steal my gal away;
I took her to a fancy ball a week come yesterday-
Dat coon jes' said, "I want you, babe! "an' looked her squar' in de eye,
An' When he hypnotized my baby into leavin' me, I thought dat I would die -Ref.
