Now there's objects in life that some people they want,
And how to gain them, of course, don't know,
But experience and ambition will ever pull you through,
Although the path may be hard to row.
Dear friends, I'll tell you, if you've an object in view,
An object you want to call thine,
There must be no playing, but remember the old saying,
That it's all in a matter, a matter of time.

It's all in a matter of time,
It's all in a matter of time,
There must be no playing.
But remember the old saying,
That it's all in a matter,
A matter of time

Now there's English actresses of great beauty, you know,
They, of course, are fine in their way:
The bald-headed prince fell in love with them all,
He was a prince, and of course held the day.
He used to explain that any actress he could gain,
That any actress would bow to his shrine;
But one made him fairy, and that was our Mary,
And all in a matter, a matter of time -Chorus.

Somewhere as you stroll out you sometimes meet
Gay young girls and fall into love;
They wear diamond rings and silk dresses, you know,
And the poor working girl far above.
They'll go around for fun, and drink lots of water,
Feeling elegant and considered quite fine;
But next morning they'll yell, finding themselves in a cell,
But it's all in a matter, a matter of time.-Chorus.

The boxing and prize-fighting is now all the rage,
There are champions you know by the score;
There's England's champion, Jem Smith, a good lad,
Who intends to make Kilrain feel sore.
They say our man hasn't got any sand,
And Smith will do him quite fine,
But if he tries to do it, you bet he'll rue it,
And all in a matter, a matter of time.-Chorus.
