And they couldn't get the floor
'til they paid their money down,
And they all decided they'd have it on the ground,
'Cause they couldn't get the floor
'til they paid their money down.
They danced all night and part of the day;
Two nigger women got in a fray.
Sal kicked Susan on the shin,
And Sue says, "Nigger, don't you do that again."
(Mr. Detherow: "That's all there is to that.")
