I'm Clarence McCarty, a man about town,
I'm sure I'm well known to you all;
I go to parties and masquerades,
I can always be seen at a ball.
I flirt with The ladies and drink champagne wine,
The darlings they think I'm so sweet;
They call me a dude, for I never act rude
With all the young ladies meet.
Spoken-Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as I walk down Washington Street
every day, smoking me "Sweet Caporal Cigarette," you'll see all the
aristocratic young ladies turn around and point at me and say:

There's Cigarette McCarty. he's hale and hearty,
Always in fashion and looking well.
Oh! he's the dandy, gum-drops and candy.
Cigarette McCarty, the masher, the swell.

At the polls on election day I can be seen.
With a big stack of bills on me arm.
Soliciting votes from each one that I meet.
My smile acts on them like a charm.
They say that's McCarty, what he says is right.
They know that I always act square.
On the Democratic ticket next fall you will see
Cigarette McCarty for Mayor.

Spoken-I was taking me constitutional ride down Beacon Street this
morning on me bicycle, I could hear everybody remark as I passed along:

There's Cigarette McCarty, he's hale and hearty,
Always in fashion and looking well.
Oh, he's the daisy, he sets them crazy,
Cigarette McCarty, the masher, the swell.
