GINGER JIM'S UNION COCKADE.
Napoleon he may try it,
And show his lack of sense,
But soon he will be gobbled up
By his Oyster-eating Prince.
Chorus.
Rip rap, flip flap,
Jump right up and break your back I For I'm gfting down to Mexico, To fight for Uucle Sam-u-e-L
"We'll let you alone for a little while,
For your race is nearly run; But you can't give thrones in Mexico—
No, nary time, not one! So take advice, friend Louy,
Keep away from Mexico; For the doctrine that we'll carry out
"Was taught us by James Monroe.
Rip rap, flip flap, etc. .
The Russian Czar sent a fleet
Out here to Yankee-land, And nobly we have welcomed them
With open heart and hand. A firm alliance is our plan—
We'd make a bully pair, With the Yankee-doodle Eagle
And the rugged Russian Bear!
Rip rap, flip flap, etc.
GINGER JIM'S UNION COCKADE. Sung by S. S. Purdy.
I'm just from old K-y, Ky, And my name is Ginger Jim;
3 goes in for de Union,
'Cause dat am bound to win.
