Riding on the Elevated Railroad.
Copyright, 1878, by Sam Devere.

While riding on the Elevated Railroad­I'll tell you all about it in my song-
I looked in all the second-story windows,
While the little train was moving right along;
Some were eating, some were drinking, some were sleeping;
Some were laughing and some more they'd cry;
Some very funny sights I saw there,
I took it in as we went by.

Riding on the Elevated Railroad,
Is pleasant, and tt just suits me;
Take it day or night, you'll sa'll see.

First of all I saw a little woman washing,
While the steam was flying thick around her head;
In another room I saw a little darling,
'Twas a pretty girl making up a bed;
Then again I saw a woman frying beefsteak,
She was a fighter, for site had a wicked eye,
While her husband he was singing to the baby,
"I'll be happy in the sweet bye-and-bye."-Chorus.

In another house I saw a lively bull-pup,
He was chasing a cat for life around the room;
In another house a woman having a picnic,
She was trying to stab her husband with the broom;
In another house I saw a lot of Dutchmen,
Eating sauerkraut and drinking lagerbier;
In another house a fellow had his sweetheart,
He was doing his level best to chew her ear.-Chorus.

In another house I saw an aged bachelor
Trying to sew his pants with a nail;
In another house I saw a little baby,
It was trying hard to bite the poodle's tail;.
In another house I saw a woman waiting
For her husband dear to come and get his tea-
But I saw him in a house upon the corner,
He had another fellow's wife upon his knee.-Chorus.
