ON UNION SQUARE.
Copyright. 1886, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.

On warm Summer days the actors of plays
Assemble to gossip and stare,
And grandly pose in a statuette way
At the piazza on Union Square.
Then it's how did you do at Kalamazoo.
Was business indifferent or fair?
We had to ring down and leave the queer town,
Because Paddy Rooney was there.

Chorus.
I live in Brooklyn on the Heights,
I've often crossed the ferry
On Catherine street where I often meet
My second cousin Terry.

It's come have a beer, you frequently hear
The chorus, the answer, oh, where!
It's not very far, there's the Morton House bar
At the piazza on Union Square.
Then it's how did you do in the town of Yazoo,
Was business indiff'rent or fair?
We had to ring down and leave the queer town,
Cause Haverly's Minstrels were there.-Chorus.

It's there we have cawn't, you shan't and you wan't,
It's English quite often you he'yar,
Get onto his nibs, his jibs and his gibs,
At the piazza on Union Square.
Then it's how did it pay in Canaday-a,
Was business indifferent or fair?
We had to ring down and leave the queer town.
Because Tony Pastor was there.-Chorus.
