IN OTHER RESPECTS WE ARE DOING- QUITE WELL.
Copyright, 1885 by Willis Woodward & Co.

I've a fluff in my throat and my voice has a crack.
My head's like a sawmill, I've pains in my back,
The state of my liver no language can tell-
But in other respects I'm doing quite well;
But in other respects I'm doing quite well.

I've just sent my daughter "Jemima to school,
My daughter Jemima's by no means a fool,
She never could read and she never will spell-
But in other respects site is doing quite well;
But in other respects she is doing quite well.
I've taken a house in the swell end of town,
The roof has a leak and the chimneys are down,
The walls were so shaky last Friday they fell-
But in other respects it is doing quite well;
But in other respects it is doing quite well.

I bet on a horse, he'd be the first in the race.
At least so they told me on naming its place.
The horse wasn't seen at the sound of the bell-
But in other respects he was doing- quite well.
But in other respects he was doing quite well.
Is life worth the living. I ask of you all?
For my part I think that the profits are small;
I know when I die they will send me to well-
But in other respects I'll be doing quite well
But in other respects I'll be doing quite well

Our politics are in so charming a state,
Tis pleasure to vote for a new candidate;
Which party's most honest no voter can tell-
But in other respects we are doing quite well;
But in other respects we are doing quite well.

I tried to play poker last week and I failed,
'Cause the flush that I bet on was only bob-tailed;
I dropped all I had and my last chaplet fell-
But in other respects I caught on quite well;
But in other respects I caught on quite well

I've dug up a statue, a thousand years old,
I've plastered it new, so the pieces will hold;
Of the original nose there is not left a smell-
But in other respects it will answer quite well:
But in other respects it will answer quite well.

This new change of time puts my watch in a spleen
When I find that it's ufty-three minutes of steen;
If to-day's not to-morrow. I really can't tell-
But in other respects my meridan works well;
But in other respects my meridan works well

A tenor once sung far above a high C,
His price was as high as a tenor's could be;
His voice was a cross 'twixt a screech and a yell -
But in other respects he could warble quite well:
But in other respects he could warble quite well.
