Night funeralIn Harlem:Where did they getThem two fine cars?Insurance man, he did not pay--

His insurance lapsed the other day--

Yet they got a satin box

for his head to lay.Night funeralIn Harlem:Who was it sentThat wreath of flowers?Them flowers came

from that poor boy's friends--

They'll want flowers, too,

When they meet their ends.Night funeralin Harlem:Who preached thatBlack boy to his grave?Old preacher man

Preached that boy away--

Charged Five Dollars

His girl friend had to pay.Night funeralIn Harlem:When it was all over

And the lid shut on his head

and the organ had done playedand the last prayers been saidand six pallbearers

Carried him out for dead

And off down Lenox Avenue

That long black hearse done sped,The street lightAt his cornerShined just like a tear--

That boy that they was mournin'

Was so dear, so dear

To them folks that brought the flowers,

To that girl who paid the preacher man--

It was all their tears that madeThat poor boy'sFuneral grand.Night funeralIn Harlem.
