Come, My Honey, I'se Got Money.
Copyright, 1895, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Dave Reed. Jr.

Erastus Jones has got a gal named Mandy,
De colored folks all say she is a dandy;
She dresses mighty sporty, her mammy's very haughty,
De colored sports think she's as sweet as candy;
When 'Rastus hasn't got a heap of money,
She says to him "go chase yourself, my honey!"
Then Rastus has to scramble to get some coon to gamble,
And if he wins he'll say:

Come, my honey, I'se got money; tell me that you'll be mine;
You're my Lily, don't be silly, and we'll be right in line.

Said he, "Now, Mandy, gal, you need not worry,
And get yo' blessed heart all in a flurry;
I'se gwine to play some poker wif a policy-shop broker,
And, sure enough, I'll break him in a hurry;
Next morning he came home dressed like a dandy,
And showed a roll of money to his Mandy;
Then 'Rastus was right in it, she grabbed him in a minute,
When to his love he said:- Chorus.
