The Old Black Crow.

De old black crow in de cornfield flew
Caw! Caw! Caw!
Said he, Mister Coon, oh, a how d’ye do?
Caw! Caw! Caw!
Oh, dar he sit till he eat his fill,
An’ he stuffed himself right up to de bill,
An’ den he laughed at de whip-poor-will,
Caw! Caw! Caw!

De old black crow see a coon go by,
Caw! Caw! Caw!
He said, Minister Coon, you are mighty sly,
Caw! Caw! Caw!
You’re just as black as a black can be,
An’ de poor white man, oh he hates you and me,
So, Mister Coon, oh, let me free,
Caw! Caw! Caw!

De old block crow, oh, he roost so high,
Caw! Caw! Caw!
He talks mighty loud when he’s in de sky,
Caw! Caw! Caw!
He looks at you, den he looks at me,
Den he flies right down from de old pine tree,
An’ den he laugh wid a he, he, he,
Caw! Caw! Caw!
