American Old Time Song Lyrics: 17 The Bloated Young Aristocrat
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 17
The Bloated Young Aristocrat.
The Honorable Sidney Fitzdoodle
Is standing before you just now;
I'm looked upon oft as a noodle.
And often get into a row;
But all this my friends can attest, sir.
Although I'm inclined to be fat,
I can take my own part with the best, sir,
Although a bloated young aristocrat.
You can see by the style of my walk,
The shape of my coat and my hat,
My style and my air, the cut of my hair,
I'm a bloated young aristocrat.
Of fashionable life I am weary,
And from it I soon shall retire.
For everything seems to be dreary,
There's nothing I really admire.
Except Sir John Muccoo's niece Carrie,
Who says I'm inclined to be fat,
And rather inclines for to marry
The bloated young aristocrat " -Chorus.
My good looks I often do rue-
What it is to be handsome, alas!
There's one girl in Fifth Avenue,
I notice, whenever I pass,
At the window, along with her poodle;
For the last fourteen days she has sat
Merely to gaze at Fitzdoodle,
The bloated young aristocrat.-Chorus.
I really must thank you profusely
For the kind way you've listened to me,
And really trust you will excuse me
If by accident I've been too free.
The gents I thank for their attention,
To the ladies I take off my hat,
But to see you again's the intention
Of the bloated young aristocrat.-Chorus.
