I'D LIKE TO BE A SWELL.
Copyright, 1869. by Wm. A. Pond & Co.

To others I will leave the praise
Of being useful men.
It's ornamental I would be,
One of the upper ten;
I dare say when it's at your foot,
It's rig " ht to kick the ball;
But I always see he's most admired
Who nothing does at all.
For I'd like to be a swell,
Yes, I'd like to be a swell;
With his drawling talk, affected walk,
I'd like to be a swell.

Chorus.
I'd like to be a swell,
Yes, I'd like to be a swell;
With his drawling talk, affected walk,
I'd like to be a swell.

I'd rather be a butterfly
Than a little ugly grub,
It always is the humble grid)
That people like to snub;
But get a suit of handsome clothes,
A lot of stamps also,
And then no matter who you are
You're certain sure to go.
So I'd like to be a swell,
Yes I'd like to be a swell;
With his drawling talk, and affected walk,
I'd like to be a swell.-Chorus.
