MA JET-BLACK LADY.
Copyright, 1897, by Consolidated Music Pub. Ass'n.
Written, Composed and Snug by Maud Raymond.
Talk about your gals so sweet promenading down the street.
Talk about your gals that cut a shine;
If you seen ma jet-black lady, you would say she was a baby,
And I'm proud to say that she is mine;
We've been keeping company just about a year, you see.
But the other day to her I said.
Gal I'll never love you stronger, what's de use of waiting longer.
Say the word and soon we will be wed.
Ma jet-black lady, ma dusky baby.
Of all de colored gals she Is the one for me,
I loves ma Sadie, tint keep it shady.
To-morrow I'll wed ma jet-black lady.
Just a simple colored gal, treat her kindly, guess I shall.
She is dearer than this world to me,
For I know she loves her honey, she ain't after all ma money.
And her heart is true as true can be;
We will have no mansion grand, finest jewels in the land,
Just a cot with roses 'round the door.
Just one little room with Sadie, den won't I be happy, maybe.
And dis coon will ask for nothing more.- Chorus.
