Don't Believe All That You Hear.
As sung by Tony Pastor.

Now the papers are-full of strange stories of late,
But don't believe all that you hear;
They tell us that Jumbo is learning to skate,
But don't believe all that you hear.
They say that policemen must shave their mustache,
That girls take the rink in on purpose to mash,
That boarding-house tables have given up hash,
But don't believe all that you hear.

Now they say dynamiters old Ireland will free,
But don't believe all that you hear,
That Short and Miss Dudley soon married will be,
But don't believe all that you hear.
They say that the sizes of bonnets decrease,
And soon they will look like a new ten-cent piece,
That Senator Evarts is growing obese,
But don't believe all that you hear.

If you meet a slick fellow around Union Square,
Now don't believe all that you hear;
He'll say that he's sure he has met you somewhere,
But don't believe all that you hear.
He'll say he's a banker with plenty of tin.
And there's a nice club-room he'll steer you right in,
He says that a chance you are certain to win,
But don't believe all that you hear.

Now they say that our blondes are all turning brunettes,
But don't believe all that you hear;
That Vanderbilt gives away half that he gets,
But don't believe all that you hear.
They say Parson Talmadge will rest for a spell,
And over our wickedness soon cease to yell,
That Colonel Bob Ingersoll thinks there's no--well,
But don't believe all that you hear.

Now they say that the actors have all got a job,
But don't believe all that you hear;
They say that Canadian cashiers wouldn't rob,
But don't believe all that you hear.
They say Mayor Grace closes each liquor store,
That boys with the growler can't work the back door,
That pool-sellers won't sell us pools any more,
But don't believe all that you hear.
