EVERY NIGHT I SEE THAT NIGGER STANDIN' 'ROUND.
Copyright. 1898, by T. B. Harms & Co.
By Joseph Hart & W. H. Matchette.

The worstest nigger that I know steals and gets into a row,
Just because He's nuthin' else to do;
He went down to a colored church, knocked the deacon off his parch,
Just because he'd nuthin else to do.
Went to a colored ball, one night, drew his razor, started a fight,
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do:
In a policy shop did loudly shout, "l'se gwina to clean dis ere place out!"
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do.

Chorus.
Ev'ry night I see that nigger stamlin' 'round, bangin' 'round;
Ev'ry night I see that nigger walkin' 'round, talkin' 'round:
Ev'ry night I see that nigger standin' 'round, hangin' 'round,
Just because he'd nothin' else to do.

One moonlight night he left his stoop to go and visit a chicken coop,
Just because he's nuthin' else to do;
Not a sound there could he heard, be said, "I'se gw me to get that bird,"
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do.
The man that owned that coop had a gun-Lordy, how that, nig did run,
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do:
You see that bird was that man's pet. I 'specs that Digger's runnin' yet,
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do.- Chorus.

Got shaking craps with a lot of coons up in Reuben Snowball's rooms,
Just because he's nuthin' else to do;
Those niggers wished he was in heaven, for ev'ry shake he shook eleven,
Just because he'd nothin' else to do:
Won all they bud. but had to client-niggers chased him down the Street,
Just because he d nnthin' else to do;
Thro' an alley, my! but it was funny. He said,
"I'll give you a run for yer money!"
Just because he'd nuthin' else to do.- Chorus.
