I'm a darkey from the country, O!
I came to see the baby show,
At Barnum's Museum I did see
The babies on their mamma's knee.
The biggest babe I ever saw,
Was a babe that came from Arkansas;
As fat and as black as a Thomas cat,
A crying for his daddy, oh!

Clap your hands till daddy comes home,
Clap your hands till daddy comes home;
Hegeldy, ogeldy, my black hen,
She lays eggs for gentlemen.

This baby had a daddy, oh!
It's a fact, I wouldn't told you so;
With calico eyes and gimblet hair,
Enough to make his daddy stare.
And then he took it on his knee,
And says: "You little duck I see,
I really think you look like me,
At least your mammy told me so. " -Chorus.

This baby's daddy went to sea,
And left him on his mammy's knee;
He fought in the wars of Mexico,
To buy the baby a trumpet, oh!
And then she took it on her knee,
By the single double rule of three;
She gave it some pady garic, oh!
And sent it up to glory, oh!- Chorus.
