Don't You Hear The Bulgine?
As Sung by Bryants' Minstrels.

Oh! I arrived in town do oder day,
I went to the depot and I hear de people say,
Dat de cars was a-coming an' do people want to go,
For de stages an' de steamboats treble very slow.

Ding, dong, bell! way goes de bell,
Don't you hear de bulgine?
Don't you hear de bulgine?
Clear de track, for she am coming.

We all took our seats, and neber said a word,
And we flow through the country, just like a bird.
He came to get his money, which I believe was a dollar,
But I didn't have a cent an' be caught me by the collar.

Now I'm done wid de railroad, so take my advice,
If you ever do as I did, why don't do it twice,
For if dat you doI he'll cotch you by the collar,
He' toss you all about, an' then he'll make you holler.

[Bryant's New Songster, (New York: Rob't M. De Witt, 1864, pp.31-32)]
