DE HOTTEST COON IN TOWN.
Copyright, 1895, by Frank Tousey.

Of dandy coons I am de swell, I'm not unknown to fame,
Aroun' dis town dey know me well, and craps, dat Is my game;
A sporty coon, I've got de sand, and likewise got de tin,
I buck de tiger and de wheel, and always sure to win.

Chorus.
For I'm de hottest coon you'll find in dis yere town.
De darkies flock to me for miles and miles aroun':
I shake de dice and rolls 'em out, come sebben, 'lebben, de darkies shout.
For I'm de hottest coon in town.

'Twas at a cake-walk that I met a dandy colored gal;
She was my little baby pet, they called her Charcoal Sal;
Like glue she loved me, and she swore she'd marry me some day.
But Lemuel Johnson he came 'long and stole dat gal away.

Chorus.
Now I'm de hottest coon you'll find in dis yere town,
I'm looking for dat nig for miles and miles aroun';
If I should find his restin' place, I'll carve my name upon his face.
For I'm the hottest coon in town.

One night I went to make a call on Louisiana Lou,
I hung my hat agin' de wall, to eat some 'possum stew;
Her little brudder grinned at me. and fo' I was aware,
He laid a razor right side up upon dis nigger's chair.

Chorus.
And I'se de hottest coon you'll find in dis yere town,
I'm looking for dat nig for miles and miles aroun'; r
If I can catch dat nigger, see, I'll cut him just where he cut me.
For I'm de hottest coon in town.

I went down to a fancy ball, in swallow tails so fine;
Among de cullud passons all. no coon like me did shine;
Some nigger wid intentions dat I can't say I admire.
Just put a match to my coat-tails, and soon I was on fire.

Chorus.
And I'se de hottest coon you'll find in dis yere town,
I'm looking for dat moke for miles and miles aroun';
And when he's found, I'll promise you dat nig will turn red, white and
For I'm de hottest coon in town. [blue.
