As sung by Tony Pastor.

We'd a trip "Across the Continent,"
Old "Forty-nine "and I;
Met "Orpheus and Eurydice,"
Discussing "Romany Rye."
Saw "Fritz in Ireland, " "In the Ranks,"
With "Clio "at the ball;
And "Hazel Kirke, " "Three of a Kind,"
Jump "Over the Garden Wall."
In a quiet little "Hamlet,"
Where the "Lights o' London "shone,
"Two Orphans " with "The Magistrate,"
At "School "sat all alone.
Then "The Mighty Dollar, " "Her Atonement"
"Eily "said would be,
While "Adonis, " with "We, Us & Co.,"
Struck "Rosed ale "on a spree.

The lovely "Piquita,"
And there's none could be sweeter,
On Tom, Dick and Harry did spoon;
While "M'liss " in a twinkle,
With gay "Rip Van Winkle,"
"Skipped by the Light of the Moon."

"Our American Cousin "soon we met,
On his "Vacation "there;
With "Kit, the Arkansas Traveler,"
Likewise "Fedora " fair.
So, "Round the World in S0 Days"
We went, but were "Called Back"
By "Sealed Instructions, " though no "Cheek
Nor "Money "did we lack.
But while "The Black Flag "waved aloft
A funny sight I saw­"Old Lavender " won the "Banker's Daughter"
In a "Corner Grocery Store;"
A "Parlor Match "it proved to be,
They soon were "Man and Wife;"
And a " Pair of Kids "will just complete
Their "Lottery of Life."

"Pygmalion and Galatea,"
Sipped Erlanger beer
"Ten Nights in a Bar Room, " quite rash;
And the "Stranglers of Paris"
All tried to embarrass
"Sam! of Posen, " who paid them "Spot Cash."
