1. In good Republican times,
When foes were turning their coats,
Some roguish chaps did bait their traps
To catch the people's votes.

[Chorus]
To catch the people's votes,
To catch the people's votes,
Some roguish chaps, Did bait their traps
To catch the people's votes.

2. The first, he'd prate of Union,
Two others went "the nigger,"
And the fourth he was a little squatter,
Four anxious rogues together
[Chorus]
Four anxious rogues together,
Four anxious rogues together,
And the fourth he was a little squatter,
Four anxious rogues together.

3. Now the nigger men stole blacks,
And the Union men votes and "sich,"
And the Little Squatter stole lots of land
To keep these four rogues rich.
Chorus. -- to keep these four rogues rich, &c.

4. The planters were cotton killed men,
The Union Bell tolled an alarm,
And Lincoln clapped his claw on the little squatter's maw,
With the slave - code under his arm.
Chorus. -- With the slave - code under his arm, &c.
