THE LOWER TEN THOUSAND. .
But since that time he has been removed, Though many a victory he has won;
And what I tell you I know is so,
For-I'm Zouave Johnny from Bull Run.
General Meade is a very good man,
And all his soldiers say so; For he fought very hard at Gettysburg—
He wolloped the rebels, that you know. Three cheers for our glorious Stars and Stripes,
Three cheers for General Grant, Ohio's son! And what I tell you I know is so,
For I'm Zouave Johnny from Bull Run. « 4
THE LOWER TEN THOUSAND. Written and sung by W. S. Budwoktii.
I'll sing you a song about the times,
And about the money too, And how it am divided . Between me and you. The upper " Ten Thousand"
Have got money for to rent, But the lower " Ten Thousand"
They haven't got a cent.
Chorus—I tell you it isn't fair,
Between me and you, For the rich to have the money, For the poor want it too.
The upper Ten Thousand
Go to balls, and parties beside— They drink their champagne,
And. call for oysters fried; But the lower Ten Thousand
Go to Jigs and raffles too— They drink their tea and coffee,
And have a codfish-stew.
9 I tell you, etc.
