AND SO SAY ALL OF US.
As sung by Hallen & Hart

It's correct nowadays to sing topical songs,
And so say all of us;
To descant about people and popular wrongs,
And so say all of us.
If you listen to me a little you may,
From things I touch on in a jocular way,
If you wish to indorse my opinion you'll say,
And so say all of us.

We'll commence with the weather, it's been very bad,
And so say all of us;
Enough to send a respectable citizen mad,
And so say all of us.
Rain fell so that folks said it never would cease.
Crops were ruined completely, though now the police
Say that county crops here are upon the increase,
And so say all of us.

The people's Gold Tribute, by Dizzy, was spurned,
And so say all of us;
The subscribers did not get their pennies returned,
And so say all of us.
Poor Tracey at last got over his woes,
The wreath is on view, now every' one knows,
In the Chamber of Honors, at Madame Tussauds,
And so say all of us.

Town Talk has been stopped by the arm of the law,
And so say all of us;
It should have been stopped though a long time ago,
And so say all of us.
To libel all parties was its great delight.
To swear white was black, and that yellow was white
And the editor's sentence, it serves him quite right,
And so say all of us.

The retired Lord Mayor got in a fearful distress,
And so say all of us;
Got himself a bad name, so they say, (Mayor or less),
And so say all of us.
Nottage told him quite plainly he'd not be rebuffed,
But the Mayor stamped with rage, and dreadfully huffed,
He's a wonderful man, and he ought to be stuffed,
And so say all of us.

Encore Verse.
Mr.---- is a jolly good man in his way,
And so say all of us;
Quite as good as you'll meet in the course of a day,
And so say all of us.
Such wisdom, such wit, and such sense so profound.
Martin Tupper before him should bow to the ground,
I propose that he treats; us to glasses all 'round,
And so say all of us.
