Copyright, 1879, by Mrs. Pauline Lieder.
Words by Jim Campbell. Music by Chas. Dockstader. '

I'm Waltzingham McSweeney, a man well known to fame,
I'm a shining light at all the clubs, I'm a man of pluck and game;
I'm the best Known man on Broadway, on account of my form and face,
And the stylish way I carry myself, with a walk of air and grace.
I'm the one you can't help notice, I'm a man of splendid parts,
I've a high-born education, I'm accomplished in all the arts;
I can swim like captain Boynton, I can walk a highland fling,
I can pull a boat with Haitian, I'm a crack shot on the wing.

Waltzingham McSweeney, that's the cognomen I bear,
The ladies admire my pretty shape and aristocratic air;
The swells they all get jealous when the dashing girls at me lear,
For my graceful glide in the ballroom, I'm called the gay cavalier.

I'm a great pedestrian walker, my record dates far back,
I'd be sure to beat O'Leary, if they'd let me on the track;
I'm known at all the races, my bets are all the boast,
I can always name the winning horse before he leaves the post.
All politicians seem to know me, they shake my hand with pride.
For they know my great influence in elections turn the tide;
All the Congressmen and Senators admire me everywhere.
And Waltzingham McSweeney, some say will be your Mayor.-Chorus.

At Rockaway or Long Branch, I'm great mogul of all,
And the landlords of the big hotels they fight to have me call;
And all the bathers upon the beach they watch me do the grand.
And the lords and dukes, and ladies, feel proud to shake my hand.
When I walk out in my bathing-suit, and step upon the beach,
The opera-glasses are leveled at me, as far as they can reach;
And your lords and dukes are known, where like a flower they fade away,
When Waltzingham McSweeney steps into the boiling sea.-Chorus.
