What Shall We Name the Baby?

Oh! such a tootsie wootsie
Was Mrs. Jones' girl,
Of all the baby wonders,
This baby was the pearl!
Its loudest squall was music,
And when it said: "Da! da'"
"What shall we name the baby?"
Exclaimed its happy pa.

Spoken- " What shall we call it, darling? "said Mrs. Jones.
Jones thought awhile, then smiled, and said: "Let's call it "-

Seraphina, Concertina, Maudie, Mary Ann,
Gushalina, Scarlatina, Roxiana, Fan,
Bridget, Susie, Allie, Sallie, Hopzibah, or Nan
Pittie, Ittie, mamma's darling, ya! ya! ya!

Then Mrs. Jones said sweetly:
"I'd like to call it, love,
Just after my dear mother-
The darling little dove!"
But Jones frowned very fiercely,
And muttered: "After that
He would not name the baby,
Nor would he name a cat!"

Spoken- " But, dearest George, " exclaimed Mrs. J. "Madam,"
replied George, "don't let us perpetuate the mother-in-law. No;
its name shall be "-Chorus.

His wife burst out a-crying,
And so did baby, too,
And oh! it bawled so loudly,
It turned from red to blue.
But Jones he stroked his whiskers,
A frightful tartar he,
And said he'd name the baby,
And this its name should be.-Chorus.

At last Jones he relented,
And kissed his darling wife;
He said that he'd repented,
There'd be an end to strife.
The baby smiled serenely,
It shook its daddy's hand,
And so they named the baby,
And had a christening grand.

Spoken-And this is what they came to the mutual conclusion
to call it:-Chorus.
