Excerpt

mixed on de subjec' of 'is fam'ly tree;
He'll brag about 'is mammy with a noble neigh,
An' deny 'is own daddy wid a ginuine bray.

But he ain't by 'isself in dat, in dat--
But he ain't by 'isself in dat.

[Illustration]

THE GRUBWORM

Br'er Grubworm wrops 'isself in twine
An' swings in 'is shroud on a evergreen vine,
Becaze it's mortal death dat brings
His on'iest chance to git 'is wings.

But you ain't by yo'self, Br'er Worm, in dat--
Oh, you ain't by yo'self in dat.

[Illustration]

RAIN OR SHINE?

Ol' Mingo, on 'is knees, he say:
"Lord, teach dis nigger how to pray,
Else riconcile two kinds o' weather
For craps an' rheumatiz together!"

But you ain't by yo'self, ol' man, in dat--
Oh, you ain't by yo'self in dat.

[Illustration]

LITTLE GREEN TREE-TOAD

Little green tree-toad on banana leaf,
Plenty po' relations all aroun' 'im in de bog;<
