DE man dat wahs de slickest tile
Doan draw de bigges' check;
De riches' lookin' kin' ob sile
Doan yiel' de bigges' peck.

De hoss dat's highes' in de pool
Doan always win de race,
Kase sometimes he's a little off,
An' sometimes held fo' place.

De bulldog wid de orn'ry jaw
Ain' half so bad to meet
As dat dar yaller mungril cur
Dat's layin for yo' meat.

De mooley cow dat hists her leg
An' makes de milkmaid scream,
Am jes' de bossie cow dat gives
De riches' kin' ob cream.

De mule dat hab de wicked eye
Ain' half so bad, now min' --
Look out for dat ole sleepy mule
Yo' 's walkin' 'roun' behin'.
