All on Account of the Price.
Copyright, 1891, by Henry J. Wehman.
Written, Composed and Sung by Jos. McAvoy.

The reason I am singing these ditties to-night,
It is all on account of the price;
When you hear it you'll say, it's 'way out of sight,
For it's all on account of the price.
There are things I've wanted I never yet got,
And many good chances I've lost in a trot;
I meant well enough and I'd bought the whole lot,
But the truth was I hadn't the price.

Chorus.
It was all on account of the price,
It was all on account of the price;
When you haven't a cent then what can you do?
When It's all on account of the price.

The parson in church every Sunday he'll preach-
Well, it's all on account of the price;
In opera, please tell why does Patti screech,
It is all on account of the price.
And why does our Mary in England remain?
And why did Miss Langtry go over again?
It's a matter quite easy for me to explain-
Well, it's all on account of the price.

Chorus.
Well, It's all on account of the price,
It is all on account of the price;
It's money they get and they're making a hit.
And it's all on account of the price.

Sometimes in a hurry you chase up the street,
It is all on account of the price.
When a stereotyped story a bum will repeat,
And It's all on account of the price,
He'll give you the gag that he's a hard-working man;
If you don't believe it, just look at my hands-
And that's what he tells you, as pleading he stands-
And it's all on account of the price.

Chorus.
Well, it's all on account of the price,
Yes, it's all on account of the price;
He'll not work a lick, but he'll work the old trick,
And it's all on account of the price.
