Since Rachel Ran Away with a Coon.
Copyright, 1898, by Howley, Haviland & Co.
Words! Tom Daley. Music by Gus Edwards.

If you listen for a while, I'm apt to make you smile
With something that you've never heard before.
All the jews are most excited and the niggers are delighted,
Over a coon who works in Cohen's clothing store.
Cohen has a pretty daughter, she's as dark as Chicago water,
And her face is just as round as the moon;
And the cause of this commotion, is because she's got a notion
That to change her luck she'll have to wed this coon.

Now all the coons in town are making preparations, for
Such a funny little wedding never happened before;
They're all putting three balls up over the door,
And are playing "*stuss" instead of four-eleven-forty-four.
They can't eat pork-chops now because that isn't "Kosher" meat;
They're going in the clothing bus'ness down in Baxter Street.
The jews have such a "headache "and their hearts ret use to beat.
Since Rachel ran away with a coon.

It will be a grand affair, all of Coontown will be there
When the rabbi makes them man and wife;
The coon is feeling funny 'cause he's going to get the money;
He won't have to work a day in all his life.
Cohen was going to have a fire in his store on Tuesday night,
But he postponed it till Thursday afternoon;
The poor man forgot to fail; he said he'd rather go to jail
Than to see his daughter married to that coon.-Chorus.
*Jewish term for poker.
