(3x) I think I hear the angels sing,
The angels now are on the wing.
I feel, I feel, I feel, that’s what my mother said,
The angels pouring ’lasses down, upon this nigger’s head.
Chorus:
(3x) Shew! fly, don’t bother me,
I belong to comp’ny G.
(3x) I feel, I feel, I feel, I feel like a morning star.
2.

A fly come sting him on the nose.
I feel, I feel, I feel, that’s what my mother said,
When ever this nigger goes to sleep, he must cover up his head.
Chorus:
