Minstrel Show Lyrics

Minstrel Show Song Lyrics


[Verse:]
I never cared about the drama
The drama always got my "hammer"
I came from sunny Alabama
Home of the Minstrel show
I think revues are always "bloomers"
They all depend upon costumers
You can have the plays
That are all the craze
At two dollars a throw

[Refrain:]
I'd rather see a minstrel show
Than any other show I know

Oh! those comical folks
With their riddles and jokes

Here is the riddle that I love the best
"Why does a chicken go...?" You know the rest

I'd pawn my overcoat and vest
To see a minstrel show


The lyrics to "Mister Bones" are as follows:

[Interloc'ter:]
Ladies and gentlemen, be seated
Mister Bones, Mister Bones
How do you feel, Mister Bones?

[Bones:]
Rattlin'!

[Interloc'ter:]
Mister Bones feels rattlin'!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, that's a good one
Tell a little story, Mister Bones

[Chorus:]
Tell a little story, Mister Bones

[Bones:]
How can you keep an angry dog from biting you on Monday?

[Interloc'ter:]
That joke is old, the answer is to kill the dog on Sunday

[Bones:]
That's not the way to keep a dog from biting you on Monday

[Interloc'ter:]
How would you bring the thing about?

[Bones:]
Have the doggie's teeth pulled out!

[Interloc'ter:]
Oh, Mister Bones, that's terrible!

[Chorus:]
Yes, Mister Bones, that's terrible!

[Interloc'ter:]
And now we'll hear the ballad singer's pet
A song we'll ne'er forget
By the barnyard quartette

[Quartette:]
Yes, my darling, you shall be, shall be
Always young and fair to me
That's a song that never will grow old
"Silver threads among the gold"

[Tambo:]
Mister Interloc'ter

[Interloc'ter:]
What is wrong with you?

[Tambo:]
I know of a doctor

[Interloc'ter:]
Tell about him, do

[Tambo:]
Sad to say, one day he fell
Right into a great big well

[Interloc'ter:]
That's too bad

[Tambo:]
It serves him right

[Interloc'ter:]
Why speak in such a tone?

[Tambo:]
He should have attended to the sick
And let the well alone

[Quartette:]
That's a joke that was told
By the minstrel men we miss
When Georgie Primrose used to sing
And dance to a song like this:


The lyrics to "Mandy" are as follows:
I was strolling out one evening by the silv'ry moon
I could hear somebody singing a familiar tune
So I stopped a while to listen
Not a word I wanted to miss
It was just somebody serenading something like this

Mandy
There's a minister handy
And it sure would be dandy
If we'd let him make a fee
So don't you linger
Here's the ring for your finger
Isn't it a humdinger?
Come along and let the wedding chimes
Bring happy times
For Mandy and me

2:05 of pop, which is performed from the stage by the same gentlemen who sang the previous song. Red and black color are always advantageous combined – whether in clothing, as here, or in the design of the hall, buildings, and even in the evening make-up. Generally, it is quite nonsensical song that displays secular society – conversations are empty and wasted, as the water in the sand. Absolutely was no essence to create a scene, clothes and spend time for this piece.
