Ol' Man Mule

DE big-haided hoss got right good sense,
But Ol’ Man Mule, he smart at bofe en’s.
He look mighty mousy, but he ain’ no fool.
You got to walk mincey roun’ Ol’ Man Mule.
When he lif’ up he top lip an’ make he eyes roll
Tell dey look lak cotton in de cotton boll,
An’ hist up he hin’ parts, an’ give one yeah a flick,—
Den what gwine to happen gwine to happen mighty quick.
He aim like lightnin’, an’ he kick like sin,
An’ when he hit, he hit, suh, whar I jes’ been!
