Grant's Trip Around the World
Tune - True as Steel."

If you listen for awhile I'm sure I'll make you smile.
For my head is always getting in a whirl;
I'm captain of this land, and you bet I'll take command.
For my name is Grant, and I've been around the world.
To England I have been, and there I met the Queen,
A Marquis, a Duchess, and an Earl;
I spoke for twenty-four hours, drank all the whiskey sours.
For my name is Grant, and I've been all around the world.
Chorus.
O'Leary's shoes upon my feet, a cigar between my teeth;
I'm the darling, the pet with every girl;
I'm traveling in disguise, and fed on custard pies,
For my name is Grant, and I've been around the world.

I then went over to Cork-'twas only for a lark- ,
And the Council shut the doors fast in a whirl;
I then skipped over to Spain, and was told to come again,
For I'm Gen. Grant, and I've been around the world.
In Germany and France they learned me how to dance.
And in Italy I kissed Alfonso;
In China I eat rice, and in Africa eat mice,
For my name is Grant, and I've been around the world.
O'Leary's shoes upon my feet, a cigar, &c.

I then went back to France, was a Committee on Finance,
But I got drunk and had to fight an Earl;
Of course I had to skip on board a government ship,
For my name is Grant, and I've been around the world.
But I'm now iu my native land, and you bet I'll take command.
For the politicians say that I'm a furl,
But you bet I've got to squirm, if I want another term.
For I'm the immortal Grant, for I've been around the world.
O'Leary's shoes upon my feet, a cigar, &c.
