Tune-"Call Me Back Again."
Written by James Curran.

Last night I went to see my little sweetheart.
To meet her I had to climb a garden-wall;
I got myself all cut with broken bottles,
And right into the garden I did fall.
Just then I heard a bull-dog sweetly warbling,
I tried to scramble back, it was all in vain;
I managed to get nearly half-way over.
When that 'ere bull-dog hauled me back again.

He hauled me back again -he hauled me back again;
I lost the seal of my new Sunday waist-coat,
When that 'ere bull-dog hauled me back again.

Last week I did attend a public meeting,
I got upon a chair to make a speech;
With sticks and stones I got a friendly greeting.
My voice was drowned, though loudly I did Screech.
With last year's eggs the roughs did vaccinate me;
They fell on me as thick as hail or rain;
To save my life I jumped into a tram-car,
The crowd pursued and hauled me back again.

They hauled me back again-they hauled me back again;
They took me down and chucked me into the river,
And with a boat-hook hauled me back again.

The other day I nearly found a sixpence,
I never was so near a thing before;
It was lying on the street, and no one near it,
I murmured, there's a drink for me in store.
Alas! alas! my hopes were disappointed,
A little hole that sixpence did contain,
And as I stooped some fellows burst out laughing.
As with a string they hauled it back again.

They hauled it back again-they hauled it back again
They said old man that tanner is quicksilver.
They pulled And dragged And hauled it back again.
