THEY'RE AFTER ME.
Copyright, 1890. by White-Smith Music Publishing Co.
Words by Frank N. Scott. As sung by William Hoey.

Our ship of state is sailing on a most uneven keel,
The people are dissatisfied and want another deal.
The country's bound for ruin at a headlong railroad speed,
To stop all this they say they've found the very man they need.

Chorus.
So they're after me, after me, to capture me is ev'ry one's desire;
They're after me, after me, I'm the individual they require.
They're after me, after me, to capture me is ev'ry one's desire;
They're after me, after me, I'm the individual they require.

The girls admire a handsome face and go a heap on "style ";
They like to see a noble brow support a shining tile.
And when a manly form appears in stunning garb arrayed,
Straightway all womankind is "mashed"-wife, damsel and old maid.-Cho.

In baseball matters things are said to be a little "mixed,"
And all who love the game desire to see the trouble fixed;
Both managers And players say there's only just one man
Can straighten things and have them run upon a better plan.-Chorus.

Our shrewd Postmaster-General And Anthony the wise
Declared Krentzer's Sonata quite unfit for modest eyes;
The book Sonata sold in scores, and people think the thing
A put-up job to make it sell And mighty profits bring.-Chorus.

In England Queen Victoria would like to take a rest,
But to resign the crown to Wales she doesn't think it best;
She says in all the universe there's just one man alone
She wants as her successor on Great Britain's mighty throne.-Chorus.
