You Bet He Won't Try It Again.
By Harry Kalron.

I'll sing you a song that is not very long,
It is topical, quite, in its way,
Now don't he alarmed, it's not the same song,
It's about things you see every day;
If you like it, you probably will give it applause,
But if it should give you a pain,
And I should get hit with a brick in the jaw,
You bet I won't try it again.

You bet I won't try it again,
You bet I won't try it again,
If you holler rats, or go throwing brick bats,
You bet I won't try it again.

There's a wily old fellow who lives in Chicago,
And the people they like him not much;
He sends the quotations of wheat up and down,
And he goes by the name of "Old Hutch."
His latest performance, as I've heard said,
Has on poor people caused quite a strain;
He added two cents on each of loaf of bread,
And I hope he won't try it again.

I hope he won't try it again,
I hope he won't try it again,
The laws will in tune make such things a crime,
And you bet he won't try it .again.

On the recent election I thought a good chance
A few hundred dollars to make;
I drew my accounts from the National Dank,
And to the pool-rooms I made a big break;
I bet all my boodle, my watch and my chain,
I thought I had a sure thing;
But I heard--- from New York,
And you bet I won't try it again.

You bet I won't try it again,
You bet I won't try it again,
But I'm telling you, in eighteen ninety two.
"Grover "may try it again.
