American Old Time Song Lyrics: 23 I'mmenseikoff; Or, The Central Toff
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 23
Immenseikoff; or, the Central Toff
Ha! my dear friends, pray 'ow de do?
I 'opes I sees you well;
Perhaps ye don't know who I am.
Well, I'm the Heastern swell.
My chambers is in Broadway,
And I fancy I'm a toff;
From top to toe I really think
I looks iinmenseikoff.
Behold in me a central toff;
A toff, a toff, a toff, a central toff,
And I think myself immenseikoff.
For my togs I used to deal with Poole,
But now in these 'ard times,
I ain't no such a lively fool,
I gets my tilings from Lynes';
And 'e gives 'em to me cheaper,
'Cos 'e says I shows 'em off,
And certainly I really think
I looks Immenseikoff.-Chorus.
With the fair sex, "bless 'em, " need I say
That I am number one?
It's really quite a bore to me
The way the girls do run;
Not away from me, but after me,
Ah! you may laugh and scoff,
But I can tell you that the girls
Think I am immenseikoff.-Chorus.
At skittles, bowls, and other games,
I licks 'em all to chalks, .
In anything where skill's required
In first I always walks.
You should see me playing billiards,
'Ow my figure I shows off;
No one can 'old a cue with me,
'Cos I'm immenseikoff.-Chorus.
By Jingo, Jove, and Jupiter!
I can't stay 'ere all night;
But before I leave this festive scene,
I wish to do what's right.
That's to thank you one and all,
For your kindness to the toff,
Who 'opes that your applause to-night
Will he immenseikoff.-Chorus.
