UNCLE SAM'S CONCERT(The Great Chicago Fair.)
Copyright, 1893, by Frank Harding.
By Arthur West. Arranged by Wm. Loraine.

Uncle Sam was very busy in the year of 'ninety-three,
Because he had a great Chicago Fair;
he sent out invitations to the best men he could see,
And was proud to see that everyone was there;
The nations gathered 'round him in a manner very grand:
The first night they were open Uncle Sam said I will stand
A supper to you fellows, come to my hotel with me;
They lit cigars, they had their wine, and this was all the spree:

They all sat 'round the table, Uncle Sam was in the chair.
Every power in Europe was represented there;
Norway sang a song where the stormy winds do blow;
Belgium, Denmark, Holland sung a trio, "Not for Joe";
Russia sang "The Wolf," in a manner very fine;
Bismarck was applauded for his "Watch upon the Rhine";
John Bull and our Jonathan, in answer to a call,
Harmonized a song called "We are brothers, after all."
Austria and Italy. Portugal and Spain,
Harmonized the ballad, "Give me back my heart again."
Switzerland was singing of a "Land of Milk and Honey ";
The Sultan sang a comic song entitled "It's for Money";
But the "Star-Spangled Banner," sang everybody there,
And that finished up the concert at the great Chicago Fair.

The people in the morning who to business had to go
Were much surprised to see these men about;
They knew they'd come to honor our great Chicago show,
And one thing did surprise without a doubt,
John Bull and poor old Paddy went out walking arm in arm;
The Czar of all the Russians in the Sultan found a charm;
The Frenchman and the German for new friendship found a berth,
And Uncle Sam felt happy that he'd brought this peace on earth.- Chorus.
