Sung by Goss and Fox at the Theatre Comique.

I'm floating along on de wings of peace,
I feel just as slippery as axle grease;
Go tell Ulysses to fetch along Saul,
Dere's lots of room for de short and tall.
We'll pass you in, it won't cost a cent,
No landlord around to collect de rent;
It's free to all to examine de ground,
Don't dodge de hat when it's passed around.

Come join de huckleberry picnic,
It's going to take place to-day;
I'se on de committee to invite you all,
I ain't got long to stay.

De wicket stands in a slippery place,
A good man always holds an ace;
If you cross de river put on your goWn,
Swim like a fish and you'll surely drown.
A policeman's like a wicked sin,
If you don't look out he'll swoop you in;
Denounce dishonesty of every sort,
But steal like an artist, don't get caught.-Chorus.
