Coon Dat Carried De Razor

Went to a ball de order night,
At Snsie Simkin’s hut;
Whar de coons all carry razors,
And how dem niggers cut,
Horace Jinks got in a row
With slow-foot Jim Frazier;
“Take care,” squealed out old Sallie Gum,
“Dat coon has got a razor”

Dey cut poor Johnny’s coat-tail off,
Dey carved him to de fat;
Dey chopped his ear clean off his head,
Den cut his beaver hat.
Aunt Hannah said: “For gracious sake,
You’ll kill poor Johnny Frazier,”
But he never noticed here at all,
But slashed’round wid dat razor.

Coons come flying down the stairs
Gals all hollered murder;
Johnny Frazier he fell down,
He couldn't fall no further.
Horace he rushed for de mokes,
And old policeman Hazier
Said: I aint gwine to take dat coon,
For he has got a razor.”
