Dar's a Lock on de Chicken-Coop Door.
Copyright, 1886, by Chas. D. Blake & Co.

Dis kentry's gwine to de dogs at last,
When de farmer sets a watch,
And a big bull-dog and a big steel trap
In de watermelon patch;
An' was dan all, dat's happened yet,
Dat makes us feel sore.
Where eber you traltel around you'll rind
Dar's a lock on de chicken-coop door.

Oh! Aunt Susan!
Did you eber hear ob dat before?
Where eber you trabel around you'll rind
Dar's a lock on de chicken-coop door.

De pullets dey flop deir wings and crow
When a darkey passes by,
Dey seem to say, dat dey can't be cotched.
And it ain't no use to try.
Oh. Gabriel, blow de mighty horn,
We can't stay here no more,
For if we do we'll starve to death,
Dat's a lock on de chicken-coop door.-Chorus.

And when we've a wedding party now,
Oh, what am we gwine to do?
Oh, where am de pullets coming from
For to put dat party (roof
Oh, hang up de banjo on de wall,
We'll rattle de bones no more,
Dis kentry's gwine to the dogs at last.
Dar's a lock on de chicken-coop door.-Chorus.
