Der Mississippi bezaubert:


Can't you hear those whistles blowing,

Steamboat's coming 'round the bend.

Ev'ry night in dreams I'm going.

Where of sunshine there's no end,

Back, back to my dear old southern home,

Soon I'm goin' to roam.



When it's moonlight on the Mississippi,

Ev'rybody acts just like they're dippy,

Hear those banjos ring, darkies sing.

They're strumming and humming "My Old Kentucky Home",

Pickaninnies dancing on the levee,

Mammy's shuflin' along, so big and heavy,

When it's moonlight on the Mississippi,

That's the paradise for me.


Moonlight makes me sigh for Dixie,

And the town where I was borne.

Soon a train I'll take for Dixie.

To the fields of waving corn,

Back, back to the Venice of our land,

You all know it's grand.
