Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
The minstrel man has a funny face
And a big sunflower in its place,
And the smile is broad in the lily white han'
Of this haw! haw! haw! minstrel man.
The minstrel man is on the end
Or in the middle of the minstrel men,
And who is happier in all the Ian'
Than this ragtime, jazz, jazz, minstrel man.
Mistah Jones went courting
Went courting sporty too, He always carried a flower
And a razor in his shoe; The flower am for my lady
Said Mistah Jones so spare, And the razor am for any niggah
Who happens to be there.
Mandy was his sweetheart
A most engaging miss, Who seemed all light and sunshine
And who seemed all joy and bliss; But when I think of that razor
And of that miss so fair, I wouldn't want to call on Mandy
When Mistah Jones is there.
