THE FIVE DOLLAR NOTE.
Sung by Frank Lewis.

One night as I was out with the boys to have a spree,
Thro' drinking whiskey punches, I was drunk as I could be;
My cash it quickly flew, I very soon was broke,
So I borrowed from a friend a five dollar note.

Chorus.
If you listen to my song, while the funny things I'll quote,
I'll tell you how I spent that five dollar note;
As soon as I was fixed, I asked the boys to take a bowl,
Which into my note made a very big hole;
We had a round of punches, and then cigars to boot,
Up went the first dollar of the five dollar note.

The boys feeling huugry after drinking so much punch,
We walked around the corner and we had a little lunch;
They eat up oyster stews, 'till I thought the boys would choke,
And they soon eat up a dollar of the five dollar note.
If you listen to my song, while the funny things, &c.

Then we went to the theatre to see the ladies prance,
And to hear the comic songs, and the fuuny song and dance;
One of the girls says, 1 feel thirsty, and brandy would suit my
And she soon drank a dollar of the five dollar note. [throat,
If you listen to my song, while the funny things, &c.

Then we walked around the town, called in a saloon or two,
Then we went to see the ladies, as the young men often do;
One said, she loved me, with her arms around my throat,
And she soon got a dollar of the five dollar note.
If you listen to my song, while the fuuny things, &c.

Then as I was going home, just as drunk as I could be,
A poor laboring man came slowly up to me;
His family they were starving, And ragged was his coat,
And he got the last dollar of the five dollar note.
If you listen to my song, while the funny things, &c.
