Tune- "Mother Told Me So."

There's an honest little Justice, who in Harlem 'mid the goats
Dispenses justice like a sound old Democrat;
He's a sober Utile party, looks at frivolity with scorn,
And a world of wisdom carries 'neath his hat.
He told me that the angels watched o'er the ladies here,
And that girls with bangs would never stand a show;
He told me that St. Peter would close the door on them,
I believe it, for Judge Duffy told me so.

He told me that the angels never wear a bang,
And that bangs and paint and powder they must go;
He said that girls with saucer bangs untruthful were and false
I believe it, for Judge Duffy told me so.

He told me Mayor Hewitt would view the Patrick's aay parade,
And, like Oakey Hall, himself would march in line,
That a Democratic postmaster we'd see near City Hall,
And that Ireland would be free in eighty-nine;
He told me that old Canada would soon claim the annex,
Her fisheries' trouble then away would blow;
He said that John L. Sullivan would some day meet his match,
I believe it, for Judge Duffy told me so.-Chorus.

He informed me Grover Cleveland some day would jolly be,
When a bouncing boy would share his happy lot;
He said barroom politicians no more would rule the roost,
That our war veterans would never be forgot.
That every red-headed girl he'd present with a white horse,
And that the Socialistic drama was a go;
He said that Dennis Kearney would in China happy live,
I believe it, for Judge Duffy told me so.-Chorus.

He told me Gen. Badeau wrote most of Grant's "Memoirs,"
That the Stewart will contest would end next week;
That the Worcester's Dictionary beat Webster's ev'ry time,
He'll translate the former into Volapuk.
He told me that the G. A. R. looked on Hewitt as a saint,
A proud "savior of society," you know,
He also said the world was full of falsehood and deceit,
I believe it-Charles A. Dana told me so.-Chorus.
