Some say, "Make muslin widout cotton," Others, "O no, 'twill be too rotten;"
Talk away, etc., Some say, "From India we'll get plent}% From Egypt, Greenland and Ashantee,"
Far away, etc.

Dey'se holdin' meetin's night and day, To find out soon some oder way,
Some way, etc., To git dere cotton widout you, But dat's a fac' dey'll nebber do,
Far away, etc.

For it will take six million bales
For de mills ob England, Scotland, Wales,
Spin away, etc., To feed de spinnin' mules and jennies, Dere boys and gals and pickaninnies,
Far away, etc.
Chorus.
Nowdis will take a time so long,
'Twill be like de horse in de ole man's song,
Sing away, etc., Dat he learned to lib widout corn or hay, But he went dead dat berry same day,
Right away, etc.
