WHEN JOHNNY GETS HIS GUN.
Copyright, 1889, by Charles Warren.
Words and Music by Charles Warren.

I hope the day will soon be here
When Johnny gets his gun;
For things will then be very queer
When Johnny gets his gun;
Although you may not understand
Why it's played by every German band,
Strange things will happen in this land
When Johnny gets his gun.

The base ball fiend will have a rest
When Johnny gets his gun;
The penant will again come West
When Johnny gets his gun;
Chicago's club will gain great fame,
And Anson's colts won't be to blame,
If they brace up and win a game
When Johnny gets his gun,

Detectives will not play old Sleuth
When Johnny gets his gun;
But seek for facts and learn the truth
When Johnny gets his gun;
The citizens will live in peace,
The city's crime will then decrease,
Politicians won't appoint police
When Johnny gets his gun.

The North side cables will run right
When Johnny gets his gun;
In the tunnel they won't stick at night
When Johnny gets his gun;
In bar-rooms men won't drink and smoke
Till three A. M.-tell chestnut jokes,
Tben tell their wives "the cable broke,"
When Johnny gets his gun.

You'll never hear a girl use slang
When Johnny gets his gun;
She'll never wear a fluffy bang
When Johnny gets his gun;
She will not giggle, hem or haw,
With gum she will not fill her jaw,
She'll leave her powder rag with ma
When Johnny gets his gun.
