WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT?
Copyright, 1886, by Henry J. Wehinan.

When anything happens now, people will say,
Oh, what do you think of it?
There's nothing but scandal to read of each day,
Oh, what do you think of it?
Those new-fangled bonnets the ladies admire
Are still growing bigger, tho' tall as a spire;
We can't see the moon if they wear them much higher,
Oh, what do you think of it?

Chorus.
Oh, what do you think of it?
Oh, what do you think of it?
The truth 'tis I say,
Which you'll find out each day,
Oh, what do you think of it?

Now Sullivan can't get a chance here to spar,
Oh, what do you think of it?
So "duffers "can challenge him from near and far,
Oh, what do you think of it?
It may be all right that the law gives 'em rats,
But why not allow them to fight out their spats
And finish each other like Killkenny cats?
Oh, what do you think of it?-Chorus.

Oh, some folks get crazy to jump off the bridge,
Oh, what do you think of it?
Our policemen nab 'em while climbing the ridge,
Oh, what do you think of it?
If cranks in the dangerous sport will take pride,
It's really a shame that they should be denied.
They ought to go free, get a chromo beside,
Oh, what do you think of it?-Chorus.

That grand old man Gladstone, we know, did his best,
Oh, what do you think of it?
He tried to give " Ireland home rule and rest.
Oh, what do you think of it?
But Parnell is fighting afar o'er the sea,
And in the near future one thing there shall be,
That's glorious Erin forever made free,
Oh, what do you think of it?- Chorus.
