SONG OF THE PLUMBER.
Copyright, 1886, by White, Smith & Co.
Words and Music by J. P. Skelly.

A plumber sallied forth to plumb, to a kingly palace by the way;
His job complete, all trim and neat, he sent his bill without delay.
The king brought forth his bags of gold, his precious jewels and his crown,
For these the plumber credit gave and took a mortgage on the throne,
For these the plumber credit gave and took a mortgage on the throne.

A plumber sallied forth to plumb to a glowing kitchen in the rear;
The cook's sweet smile awoke his guile, he whispered love notes in her ear.
The boiler burst, the fire went out, while they were spooning o'er their wine,
And when the master came at eve he had to go outside to dine,
And When the master came at eve he had to go outside to dine.

A plumber sallied forth to plumb to a fairy chateau on the hill;
He lingered through the summer days and in the autumn brought his bill.
The landlord gazed in wild dismay, he raved, his hair he madly tore-
And now, in golden letters bright, the plumber's name is on the door,
And now, in golden letters bright, the plumber's name is on the door.
