African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

Negro Dancers, by Langston Hughes

"Me an' ma baby's
Got two mo' ways,
Two mo' ways to do de buck!
   Da, da,
   Da, da, da!
Two mo' ways to do de buck!"

Soft light on the tables,
Music gay,
Brown-skin steppers
In a cabaret.

White folks, laugh!
White folks, pray!

“Me an' ma baby's
Got two mo' ways,
Two mo' ways to do de buck!"
