NOT MUCH!
Copyright, 1884, by T. B. Harms & Co.

Say. what do you think of our Navy to-day?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
Then what do you think of its management, pray?
Not much 1 Not what? Not much!
The ships, it is true, are but hulks, you are right,
There's the old Talapoosa that sunk out of sight,
When she run down a poor little tub one dark night,
Not much! Not what? Not much!

Chords.
But 'tis better than nothing at all? Not much!
Not better than nothing at all? Not much! !
Tho' 'tis bad, you'll agree, that much worse it might be,
And 'tis better than nothing at all? Not much!

Now what do you think of the dudes of to-day?
Not much 1 Not what? Not much!
Well, what do you think of the dudelets? then, pray?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
Their bandoline bangs are not nice, I'll admit,
And then they're not noted for having much wit,
But really, now don't you admire them a bit?
Not much! Not what? Not much!- Chorus.

Well, what do you think of your mother-in-law?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
She's the gentlest woman that ever I saw!
Not much! Not what? Not much!
Well, maybe she has quite a temper, you know,
And knowing the fact, why just give her a show.
To let out her temper at times, don't you know?
Not much! Not what? Not much!-Chorus.

Now what do you think of our candidates, pray?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
Then what do you think of their platforms to-day?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
Some stories they tell are decidedly thin,
I guess they are all of them spending their tin,
It won't make much difference which side does win,
Not much! Not what? Not much!-Chorus.

What do you think of our cashiers and banks?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
What do you think of Canadian cranks?
Not much! Not what? Not much!
They try and acquit our tellers who skip,
Who into our savings make many a dip,
Would our juries do likewise if they held the whip?
Not much! Not what? Not much!- Chorus.
