Of sayings that art' old and new,
A good stock I have heard,
That well apply to many things,
Both solemn And absurd;
But still the best of all, I think,
The subject of my song;
Though please don't round on me and say­"There's another good man gone wrong."

There's another good man gone wrong,
There's another good man gone wrong.
How oft you'll hear that speech severe­There's another good man gone wrong.

In coming down the street to-day
I noticed neighbor Spare
Reclining in the gutter, with
His heels high in the air;
He'd two black eyes, a broken nose,
Around him was a throng;
I couldn't help remarking then­"There's another good man gone wrong."

Spoken-- Very good sort of a chap was Spare, but he married a widow and
very naturally took to drink, they always do; whenever I see a case of that
kind I always say: -Chorus.

At home I am the quietest chap,
And rows I never raise.
Although I own I cannot bear
The thought of washing-days;
But last week I had such a row,
We went at it ding-dong,
Until the neighbors shouted out­"There's another good man gone wrong!"

Spoken-I banged the furniture about, smashed fourteen plates, two cups
and a soup tureen, threw the baby's cradle into the fire, burned my wife's chignon,
And all the neighbors shouted out:-Chorus.

We had the brokers in last mouth,
At least we'd only one.
But he had appetite for six,
When feeding he'd begun;
To pay him out I took my watch,
To pawn it for a sons'.
But "Uncle," when I showed it, said­"There's another good man gone wrong."

Spoken -I asked him only two pounds on it, but before I know where I was,
I found myself kicked out into the street and the pawnbroker remarking:
"Why, the works ain't fit for a mangle!" while all the little boys cried: Cho.

Some slight advice I tender you
Before fI take my leave,
And that it is of value, you
Will readily conceive;
Be careful, as you go through life,
To work with vigor strong;
Then folks will ne'er have cause to say­"There's another good man gone wrong." -Chorus
