THE DOTLET ON THE "I"
Copyright, 1883, by Edward Aronson & Co.
Music by Carl Klimmer. Words by Sydney Rosenfeld.

In olden days a learned man a learned message penn'd,
But when the people came to scan, not one could comprehend.
"We try to read they cried in vain! and yet the writing's plain."
"We try to read they cried in vain! and yet the writing's plain."

Chorus
At last they saw why not, and this the reason why:
The man forgot the dotlet the dotlet on the "i"
At last they saw why not, and this the reason why:
The man forgot the dotlet, the dotlet on the "i"

A royal house an heir requires, and father, mother pray,
The wish that most their heart desires be born to them one day.
"No little girl will bring us joy, we wish a little boy!"
."No little girl will bring us joy, we wish a little boy!"

Chorus.
At last a tiny totlet, a prince arrives, oh, my!
That princelet was the dotlet. the dotlet on the "i"
At last a tiny totlet, a prince arrives, oh, my!
That princelet was the dotlet, the dotlet on the "i"

The scientific age of man has come to us at last;
The missing link that Darwin sought has finally been class'd:
It wears tight pants and bangs its hair, and is not very shy;
It wears tight pants and bangs its hair, and is not very shy.

Chorus
Of all the silly rotlet of this and time gone by.
The dudelet is the dotlet, the dotlet on the "i"
Of all the silly rotlet of this and time gone by.
The dudelet is the dotlet. the dotlet on the "i"
