The stage was not the only place where caricatures of African Americans were on display. The graphic art on Minstrel Show sheet music and posters were also venues to display highly caricatured images. These images set the tone for the ridicule that ensued, at the expense of African Americans, at minstrel shows.

Lyrics to "All Coons look alike to Me"

Talk about a coon a having trouble
I think I have enough of ma own
It's alla bout ma Lucy Jane Stubbles
And she has caused my heart to mourn
Thar's another coon barber from Virginia
In soci'ty he's the leader of the day
And now ma honey gal is gwine to quit me
Yes she's gone and drove this coon away
She'd no excuse to turn me loose
I've been abused, I'm all confused
Cause these words she did say

Chorus:
All coons look alike to me
I've got another beau, you see
And he's just as good to me as you, nig..
Ever tried to be
He spends his money free,
I know we can't agree
So I don't like you no how
All coons look alike to me

Never said a word to hurt her feelings
I always bou't her presents by the score
And now my brain with sorrow am a reeling
Cause she won't accept them any more
If I treated her wrong she may have loved me
Like all the rest she's gone and let me down
If I'm lucky I'm a gwine to catch my policy
And win my sweet thing way from town
For I'm worried, yes, I'm desp'rate
I've been Jonahed, and I'll get dang'rous
If these words she says to me

Chorus:
All coons look alike to me
I've got another beau, you see
And he's just as good to me as you, nig..
Ever tried to be
He spends his money free,
I know we can't agree
So I don't like you no how
All coons look alike to me
