FAR, FAR AWAY,
Sung by Fred. Haiku.

Where are my childhood's days?
Far, far away;
Since then I've uot made a raise,
Far, far away.
Once I slept in mamma's knee,
Once the ladies they kissed me,
Ne'er a kiss do I now see,
Far, far away.

Where is the first girl I loved?
Far, far away;
With another man she roved
Far, far away.
Words of kindness once she said,
I being soft-she swelled my head.
Left me lonely in my bed,
Far, far away.

Where is my mother-in-law?
Far, far away;
She with the angels wags her jaw.
Far, far away.
Her big tongue was above proof,
But now she's won the golden roof,
Talk dislocated her eye-tooth,
Far, far away.

Where did my wife disappear?
Far, far away;
She left me when I was full of beer.
Far, far away.
I did not my wife pursue,
Was glad she was lost to view,
Though she took my furniture, too,
Far, far away.

Where is my trusted friend?
Far, far away;
That helped me my cash to spend,
Far, far away.
When my money it went quick,
'Twas his treatment made me sick,
Instead of friendship got a kick,
Far, far away.

Where's the chicken I did eat?
Far, far away;
I'm satisfied that I smell meat,
Far, far away.
After champagne once I ran,
Now I'm lucky if I can
Drink beer from a tomato can,
Far, far away.

Where is the beauty I had?

Far, far away;
Everything's goue to the bad,
Far, far away.
Mine is a busied man's fate,
When I want a drink, and it state,
They tell me-gone is the slate,
Far. far away.
