A friend of mine went to the race And had a jolly time.
So did I, so did I;
he bet his money on a horse upon a dead-sure tip.
So did I, so did I;
A book-maker had told him that he knew the horse would win.
So he quickly forced himself into the betting-ring,
And with that very man he bet-he bet with all his vim.
So did I, so did I.

So did I, so did I-
I thought him a pet, but he's running yet;
turned pale as a ghost, he got left at the post,
My friend got a roast, so did I.

A little game of poker, oh, the other night he played,
So did I. so did I;
The limit was away up high, but in that game he stayed,
So did I. so did I:
Every penny that he had he lost, just like a simple gawk;
he hadn't even car-fare, and with rage he couldn't talk;
To his boarding-house, three miles away, through mud he had to walk.
So did I, so did I.

So did I, so did I-
A car I espied-of course, could not ride;
Oh, his shoes they were thin, and it rained hard as sin,
He got wet to the skin, so did I.

he went in a saloon the other night to get a drink,
So did I, so did I;
He did not have a penny so he gave the boss the wink,
So did I, so did " I;
He was a great big follow, of that there Is no denying;
he tried to smooth It over, but he felt much more like crying,
When the boss he quickly grabbed him, thro' the window he went flying,
So did I, so did I.

So did I, so did I;
He had hardly dropped, was seized by a cop;
The station-house near, and the judge he was queer,
He got just a year, so did I.
