LITTLE AH SID.
Copyright, 1886, by F. A. North & Co.

Little Ah Sid was a Chinee kid,
A cut little cub you'd declare,
With eyes full of fun, and a nose that begun
Right up at the roots of his hair.
Chorus.
Ki-ya, Ki-ya, Kyip-ye, yu-ka-kan,
Ky-ya, Ki-ya, yu-ka-kan,
Sang little An Sid, the Chinee kid,

 "As he played thro' the long Summer day.

Jolly and fat was the frolicsome brat
As he played thro' the long Summer day,
And braided his cue as his father used to
In China land, far, far away.-Chorus.

Once o'er a lawn, that Ah Sid played upon,
A bumble bee flew in the Spring;
Melican butterfly! cried he, winking his eye,
Me catchee and pull off um wing.-Chorus.

Then with his cap he struck it a rap,
This innocent bumble bee,
And put its remains in the seat of his jeans,
For a pocket there had the Chinee.-Chorus.

Down on the green sat the little sardine,
In a style that was strangely demure,
And said, with a grin, that was brimful of sin.
Me mashee um buttleefly, sure.-Chorus,

Little Ah Sid was only a kid,
Nor could you expect him to guess
What kind of a bug he was holding so snug
In the folds of his loose-fitting dress.-Chorus.

Ki-ya, Kyip-ye, Ah Sid cried, as he
Rose hurriedly up from the spot;
Kayi-yu-ka-kan, hang um Melican man,
Um buttleefly velly much hot.

Chorus.
Ki-va, Kyip-ye, Ah Sid cried, as he
Rose hurriedly up from the spot;
Kayi-yu-ka-kan, hang um Melican man,
Um buttleefly velly much hot.
