Moi, Aussi.

Moi aussi, je chante l'Amerique.

Je suis le frere plus noir.
Ils m'envoient a la cuisine pour manger
Quand des invites viennent.
Mais je ris,
Et je mange bien,
Et je m'affermis.

Demain,
Je serai a la table
Quand des invites viennent.
Personne n'osera
Me dire,
'Mangez dans la cuisine, '
Alors.

D'ailleurs,
Ils verront comment je suis beau
Et ils auront honte-

Moi, aussi, je suis l'Amerique.
