Carols of an Old CodgerI stood beside the silken rope,Five dollars in my hand,

And waited in my patient hopeTo sit anear the Band,

And hear the famous Louie playThe best hot trumpet of today.And then a waiter loafing nearSays in a nasty tone:

"Old coon, we don't want darkies here,Beat it before you're thrown."

So knowin' nothin' I could doI turned to go and--there was Lou.I think he slapped that Dago's face;His voice was big an' loud;

An' then he leads me from my placeThrough all that tony crowd.

World-famous Louie by the handTook me to meet his famous Band."Listen, you folks," I heard him say."Here's Grand-papa what's come.

Savin' he teached me how to play,I mighta been a bum.

Come on, Grand-pop, git up an' showHow you kin trumpet

.: :.

The setting takes place at a high-end club where the world famous Louie is playing with his band. A colored man is waiting to go in to see this performance but is unwelcomed by one of the waiters at the club and called the black man an “old coon” and that “darkies are not wanted there”, also the waiter threatened to throw the poor man out if he didn\'t leave. Just as the frail man was turning to leave, the great Louie appeared in front of him. The musician slaps the nasty waiter in the face, then leads the bewildered old man through the crowd and up to meet his renounced band. Surprisingly, the old colored man is the great Louie\'s uncle, and he taught Lou how to play the trumpet. Then Louie asks his grandfather to go up and play for everyone. Nervously he got up and played for the band and the crowd of cheering people. The man was shedding tears of joy and went home to tell his wife of the greatest night of his life.
