Copyright, 1883, by Will H. Kennedy.

I'm one of those fellows that stroll around town,
Admired by the belles and the beaus;
My attitude sweet I'm always neat.
And wear naught but elegant clothes.
In the days long ago folks would call me a swell,
But that to me sounds rather crude;
The name is non est -I ignore it, quite
Preferring this: " A Dude."


I'm a dude--dandy dude,
Don't you see by my style I'm in fashion;
See my hair- not all there.
For hair oil you know was my passion;
Necktie very-crush'd strawberry,
And I live on canary bird food;
Diamonds wear, bang my hair­I'm a dashing-a dandy young dude.

With my stiff, stand-up collar, and necktie to match,
Pantaloons with a small stripe of silk;
One eyeglass will do, for those that wear two
Are fellows that's not of my ilk.
Though I wear a large diamond that cost lots of tin,
I never can act at all rude;
With shoes just like toothpicks, I'm quite au fait.
Just what you see, " A Dude."-Chorus.
