Climbing Up the Golden Stairs.
Copyright, 1884, by F. Heiser.

Come all you little niggers,
Now watch your cues and figures,
Climbing up the golden stairs-
If they think you are a dude,
They will treat you rather rude,
When you're climbing up the golden stairs.

Then hear them bells a-ringing,
'Tis sweet, I do declare;
Oh, hear them darkies singing,
Climbing up the golden stairs.

Old Peter looked so wicked
When I asked him for a ticket,
Climbing up the golden stairs;
If I give him a half dollar,
He will grab me by the collar
And fire me up the golden stairs.-Chorus.

Old Satan he's a dandy "
He'll not feed you on mixed candy,
When you're climbing up the golden stairs;
Brimstone is good enough,
No tobacco, beer or snuff,
When you're climbing up the golden stairs.-Chorus.

They'll lock you in a stable,
Make you tight for Cain and Abel,
Climbing up the golden stairs;
Old Adam and his wife
They will play the drum and fife,
To greet you on the golden stairs.-Chorus.

Go tell the Jersey Lily
That the sights would knock her silly,
Climbing up the golden stairs;
And tell John L. Sullivan,
He'll have to be a better man,
If he wants to climb the golden stairs.-Chorus.

Bob Ingersoll's respected,
But I think he'll be rejected,
Climbing up the golden stairs;
Oh, won't he kick and yell
When they fire him into-well,
Climbing up the golden stairs.-Chorus.
