Chorus.—Massa run, aha !
Darkey stay, aho! It must be now dat de kingdom's comin', In the year of Jubilo.
He's six feet one way, four feet t'other,
And weighs three hundred pounds ; His coat's so big1 he can't pay de tailor—
Den it don't go half around.
" Massa run, aha."
He drills so much dey call him cap'n;
And he am so very tan, Speck he'll try to fool dem Yankees
And say he's contraban'.
Dis darkey gets so very lonesome,
In de cabin on de lawn; He moves his things to massa's parlor,
To keep 'em, while he's gone.
