"Aunt Bridget's Baby."
Jim and I were playmates-together went to school
In childhood's happy hours, where we learned the golden rule;
Many were the good times then in happy days gone by;
Many hardships we've endured, my dear old pal And I.
Always together-ever together Jimmie and I have been-
Loving each other-dear as a brother-nobody came between;
Together when we were at school, together when we were at sea;
I'd give up my life for my dear old pal-he'd do as much for me.
Fancy Jim and I one night out on the rolling sea.
Our ship a mass of flames, the smoke was suffocating me;
The last thing I remember-Jim said, "Courage, don't be alarmed!"
I awoke to find myself locked tightly-saved in my shipmates arms.-Chorus.
