Strolling so gaily down Bowling Green,
This gay youth you might have seen;
Maginnis and I with a girl between,
But, oh! what a surprise.
I praised the Republicans frank and free,
Maginnis got angry quite speedily,
And in a moment be handed me
Two lovely black eyes.
Two lovely black eyes,
Oh! what a surprise;
Only for telling a man he was wrong,
Two lovely black eyes.

The next time I argued I thought it l)est
To give the Republican's a rest;
So the merits of Henry George I pressed,
But, oh! what a surprise.
The man I had met was from Tammany true,
Nothing the workingmen right could do,
This was my share of that argument too,
Two lovely black eyes.-Chorus.

The moral you've caught, there is no doubt,
Never on politics rave or shout;
Leave it to others to fight it out,
If you would be wise.
Better by far it is to let
Republicans and Democrats alone, you bet,
Unless you are willing and anxious to get
Two lovely black eyes.-Chorus.
