GRAFTED INTO THE ARMY.                            4$
Chorus.
Then mind your eye, 0 ladies all,
Take>my advice, oh do; And watch this cunning grocery-man \         On; Franklin Avenue 1
i
This grocery-man was so polite,
As most of merchants are, His store was always crowd-i-ed
With ladies young and fair. It happened that a dam-su-el
In love fell sick and sore
With this young grocery-mer-chi-ant
And his little grocery-store.
(Then mind your eye, etc.
Charles Augustus, in return, loved her
With all his might and main, And swore that none should separate him
From his swTeet Susan Jane 1 And Susan Jane she'also swore
She'd prove both kind and true, And that no butcher's cleav-i-er • Should cut their love in two I
Then mind your eye, etc.
GRAFTED INTO THE ARMY, Sung by Archy Hughes.
Our Jimmy has gone for to live in a tent,
They have grafted him into the army; He finally puckered up courage and went,
When they grafted him into the army. I told them the child was top young alasl At the captain's fore-quarters they say he would pass; They'd train him up Avell in the infantry class—
So, they grafted him into the army. 5
