The Fellow That Plays the Kazoo.
Copyright, 1881, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and music by Victor Hawley.

I once was a happy young fellow,
I never knew trouble or care,
But now I feel blue, green and yellow,
And stand on the verge of despair.
The cause of my sorrow and moping
I'll mention in secret to you-
My gal she lists just been eloping
With a fellow that plays the kazoo

Chorus.
Oh, dear! what shall I do?
My heart is breaking in two;
I'm left all alone,
For my girl she has flown
With a fellow that plays the kazoo.

I think I'll jump into the ocean,
And pull for that beautiful shore.
Where men with kazoos have no portion,
Nor coachmen can e'er enter more.
It makes me feel like the old Harry,
I don't think it's right, now, do you?
For young girls to run off and marry
With a fellow that plays the kazoo.

Chorus.
Oh! dear! what shall I do?
My heart is breaking in two;
Twas like an earthquake,
When she gave me the shake
For a fellow that plays the kazoo.

I hope you'll not think me intruding,
If a word of advice I'd impart
To any young man who is brooding
O'er a maiden that's broken his heart.
Don't worry or get in a flutter,
Nor think that she'll ever be true,
But know that she's skipped o'er the gutter
With a fellow that plays the kazoo.

Chorus.
Oh, dear! what shall I do?
My heart is breaking in two;
It is all very well,
She can just go to-ahem!
With the fellow that plays the kazoo.
