MARTHA JANE GREEN.

Words and Music by Buck Sheffer.
Martha Jane Green is a funny name it seems-mind just the same,
Very funny sight to see a nig at night, no one can tell his name;
It's different with me, as you can plainly see;
How very strange it seems,
No matter where I go. every one, you know,
Says: How do you do. Martha Jane Green?
Martha Jane Green, funny name it seems;
I like it just the same;
Walk along the street, little ones I meet
Say: How do you do, Martha Jane Green?
I go to grand balls, if I ever get a chance, you do the same;
Invited by them all to 'tend the fancy ball, even if it rains;
I dance in every set, and you can always bet
I never treat you mean;
As I walk upon the floor, nigs begin to roar:
A-how-do-you-do, Martha Jane Green?-Chorus.
