Written and sung by Sam Devere.

They are going to try and stop them selling crooked auction pools.
It's the latest;
The Bowery they say it will be full of Sunday schools.
It's the latest.
Then the gawks that come from Jersey will fail to see the sights,
The dudes are going crazy, and bald heads are on a strike.
Because Miss Lillian Russell has refused to put on tights,
It's the latest.

Johnnie Bull he thinks that all the Irish people they are fools.
It's the latest;
Because they're fighting very hard to try and get home rule,
It's the latest.
How they suffer under English rule no human tongue can tell,
Old Pigott with his forgeries, and the London Times as well,
Couldn't down the Land League or its hero, Chas. Parnell,
It's the latest.

Down at Washington they're having quite a time the papers say.
It's the latest;
Since our President and Congress took their seats the other day,
It's the latest.
I hope they'll pass a bill to give the workingman a show,
Cleveland's administration you'll admits been rather slow;
So with an empty cradle he'll go back to Buffalo,
It's the latest.

Of the elevated conductors I would like to say a word,
It's the latest;
I think the orders they receive are certainly absurd,
It's the latest.
They'll holler "here step lively, " and in your face the gate they'll slam.
But I think they ought to be open when to save a fellow man;
But the directors for a poor man's life, you bet, don't care a,
It's the latest.

We produce the smartest fighters in this country there's no doubt,
It's the latest;
For Jack McAuliffe he has knocked the light weight English champion out,
It's the latest.
And John L. for his battle with Kilrain this time will surely train,
Then the draw across the water will be easy to explain:
For Sullivan the champion of the world, you bet, will still remain.
It's the latest.

A hundred years ago George Washington in New York did land.
It's the latest;
And to celebrate that arrival they fixed things very grand,
I't8 the latest.
And all the people from nea,r and far they tried to get a chance
To see the Centennial parade and join into the dance,
For we invited all our sisters And our cousins And our aunts.
