The Dance

Old Massa going away this afternoon
To call upon hiz brudder
So darkiez wait a little while
Till he getz out of sight
We’ll drop the shuble and the hoe
We’ll have a little dance tonight
We’ll have a little dance tonight boys
And dance by de light of the moon

I risez at de break of day
To take my morning walk
I meets my lubely July Ann
And dis iz de way we talk
I sayz you iz my own true love
You are my hearts delight
Wont you come over de riber dis evening
And have little dance tonight
We’ll have a little dance tonight boys
And dance by the light of the moon

I want my cambric handkerchief
I wants my silk cravat
Oh hand me down my high heel boots
Like wise my beaver hat
We are going over to the river to
Have a little dance tonight
We are going over de river to
Have a little dance tonight
