By Chas. Sulley.

The title of this very heart-rending song
Is. "Not in a thousand years;"
Could I tell you to whom it does really belong,
Not in a thousand years.
Will the large opera-hat ever go out of style,
Or dudes cease going out between acts for awhile,
Just to take on the quiet what they call a smile?
Not in a thousand years.

Can a man go home full and unlock the door?
Not in a thousand years;
Can a woman keep track of a base-ball score?
Not in a thousand years.
Was there a ball-player-that wouldn't swear
The umpire was a cheat and not on the square;
Will a conductor knock down anything that's not fare?
Not in a thousand years.

Will ever an old maid tell you her right age?
Not in a thousand years:
Or John L. ever do soubrette parts on the stage?
Not in a thousand years.
Will girls of sixteen quit wearing short hair.
Or Belva Lockwood ever sit in the President's chair?
Is a bobtail flush better than two little pair?
Not in a thousand years.
