Words and Music by Will H. Fox.

I've got a little song to sing, the title it is new;
Will this thing ever end I No, never!
And ere I finish up my lay you'll find the words are true;
Will this thing ever end? No, never!
Old England has been kicking about the Behring Sea:
She'd better let well enough alone and set old Ireland free.
That would be appreciated more, I think you'll all agree;
"Twould make many souls happy forever!

The fighters now throughout the land are at their bluffs again.
Will this thing ever end? No, never!
I thought all bluffs had ended when Mitchell crossed the main;
Will this thing ever end? No, never!
There's no dispute Fitzimmons is the greatest middle-weight,
With McAuliffe, Slavini and Dixon in their classes they are great;
But whoever goes against John L. will surely meet their fate;
And remember John L.'s right forever!

Preachers leave their pulpits now and go "round buying wine;
Will this thing ever end? No, never!
The scenes that they had witnessed, in their sermons they define;
Will this thing ever end? No, never!
It's right, I will acknowledge, for us to stop all vice;
Yet to play leap-frog with pretty girls it really must be nice;
But before I'd speak of it in church, I think I would think twice?
Such remarks should have an end forever!
