Come all, ye little darkies, and lords and queens and marquis,
And listen to it story I will tell:
The mini's name it was Jonah, the whale said, "You're a goner,"
And swallowed Jonah up in his great, big bel.

"Oh, my! Jonah, you're a goner! "
That's what the old whale said;
But Jonah wasn't cranky; Buys he, "I am a Yankee,
You bet I'll make him wish that he was dead."

Now when the whale saw Jonah and said. "You are a goner,"
He grabbed him by his little kinky head;
Says he, "You wicked sinner, I'll have you for my dinner.
You're just as black and sweet us ginger bread." - Chorus.

Now soon there was some trouble, the whale bent nearly double,
Cried, "My, oh, my! this gives me awful pain."
Says he, "I guess this niftier niggar grown a trifle bigger,"
And so be tried to get him out again.-Chorus.

Then soon the whale grew giddy: says he, "My chick-a-biddy.
You've got to get out here, or else I'll die,"
But the more the whale insisted, the more old Jonah twisted.
Until the mermaids all began to cry. -Chorus.

"Oh, my! but this is awful, I've got a great big jaw-ful,"
The whale cried out in anguish, horrified.
"My oil and whalebone plenty I'd give to you, McGinty,
If you will help me get that coon outside." - Chorus.

Then soon the whale is bleedin', as if he had been feedin'
On tucks and pins and needles all his life;
Buys he, "You wicked nigger, you must have pulled a trigger,
Or cut my insidea with a curving knife." - Chorus.

M last the whale grew hazy and screamed, "You set me crazy;
Say, nigger, what you brain1 in your hand?"
Then with a shriek and wall he, the monster shook his tail-ee,
And tossed old Jonah up upon the land.-Chorus.

Then says the whale to Jonah, nearly was a goner;
What made you hurt me so, you black galoot? "
Says Jonah, "Mr. Whale, you, you didn't think I'd nail you;
You see I Lad a razor in my boot." - Chorus.
