I'se singin' w'ile de yaller union am shinin' bright as day,
De moonlight jes' delight dis coon an' turn his heart yo' way;
I reckon yo' know why it's lignt jes' t'rills me tro' and tro',
W'ile l'se a-singin' here in de night, it's yaller jes' like yo',
Oh, ma Lulu, Lulu! jes' hark ter me, ma honey maid,
For yo' ma heart am warm, l'se gwine ter, wid de moonlight's aid,
Jes' take yo' heart by storm: I'll call upon yo' soon, doah' fear,
An' ax yo' out wid me, an' dis yer question yo' will hear:
"Will yo' be Missis me?" *Will yer. honey?*
Oh, ma Lulu, yo's ma honey bird.
Come, ma honey, won't yo" say de word?
Oh, ma Lulu, yo' know w'at I misses:
I's Jes' pinin' fer yo' sweet, sweet kiss'm, m;
If, ma honey, In ma heart yo'd see,
Den I's sure yo'd whisper "yes" ter me.
I'll be happy if ma own yo'll be.
'Deed I will, ma Lulu, Lou, ma Lulu.

Yo' sweetes' gal in all de worl', de on'y gal for me:
Yo' caught me wid yer kinky curls; I nebber can fit free;
Yo' sports such awful lots o' style: in ya'ler yo' looks gran'.
Oh, how on you I'd lub ter smile flint off a four-in-han't
Oh, ma Lulu, Lulu at dancin' yo' kin bent 'em all.
Oh! how yo' feet jes' fly! an' tho' yo's belle ob all de hall,
You nebner pass me by, an' if yo' ban' I wins f'um you.
Dem jealous nigs donn' fear, I'll say, an' squelch dem all, fo' slio
"She's mine, yo' coons: d'ye hear?" *Hear me, niggers?*
Oh, ma Lulu, we will nehber roam,
Oh, ma honey, from our cabin home.
Oh, ma Lulu, dere am no place snugger;
Oh, ma Lulu, how I longs ter hug'm, m,
If, ma honey, in ma heart yo'd see, etc.

* Spoken.
