44                                  JOHNNY SCHM0KER.
A poor white gal may work and sweat, Get out of health and into debt— And if her bills she cannot meet, May starve to death or walk de street: But look at me! when day's work's done, . I think of nothin' else but fun; And if at work I 'am too ill, Why, massa pays de doctor's bill.
Dem Abolitionists, etc.
Dey say, "How happy slaves would be,
If dey only were made free !'r
But I cannot quite exactly see
What I should gain by liberty;
For I am worth, just as I stand,
A thousand dollars cash in hand!
So as a slave I'll be content,
.'Cause free niggers isn't worth a cent.
Dem Abolitionists, etc
JOHNNY SCHMOKER. (Sung by Hooley's Minstrels, with shouts of laughter and applause.)
