Now'sposodutman nn"oouian hadn't 'tempted for to shirk, But had gone about (loir gardenin' and tended to delr work j Doy wouldn't hab beou luafln' whar dey bad no business lo, An' de ilebbel nebor'd had u cbanco to tell 'eoi what to do. No half way doin's, bredren! It'll ncber do, I say; Go at jou task an' finish it, an' d'lt's do time to play For eben ef do crap is good, do ruln'll epilo de bolls, Unless you keep in do g.udon ob your souls. Keep and aud ob do i ows, Aud when de ginnin's ober you kin pay up what you owe: But if you quit's ebcry timo tie sun is hot, Do Sheriff's gwlno to lebby on eberything you's got. Wkatebar 'tis you'ro dribin' at, bo shoro and dribe it through, And don't lot nuliin' stop you, but do what you's gwiue ter do j For when you sec a niggor folHn', den, as shoro oa ymx is born, You's gwino to seo him comin' out do small end ob do horn.
