By Charles Follen Adams.

Vas marriage a failure? Veil, now, dot depends
Altogedder on how you look at id, mine friends.
Like dhose double horse teams dot you see at der races,
Id depends pooty much on der pair in der traces,
Eef dhey don'd pool togeddher rightd off at der shtart
Ten dhimee oadt off nine they vas beddher apart.

Vas marriage a failure? Der vote vas In doubt;
Dhose dot's oudt vould be in, dhose dot's In vould be oadt;
Der man mit oxberience, good looks and dash,
Gets a vife mit some five hundord dhousand in cash,
Budt, after der honeymoon, vhere vas der honey?
She haf der oxberience-he huf der money.

Vas marriage a failure? Eef dot vas der case
Vot vas to percome off der whole human race?
Vot you dink dot der oldt "Pilgrim faders "vould say.
Dot came in der Sunflower to oldt Plymouth Bay,
To see der fine coundtry dis peoples haf got,
Und dhen hear dhem ask sooch conondhroms as dot?

Vas marriage a failure? Shust go, ere you tell.
To dot Bunker Mon Hillument, vhere Varren fell:
Dink off Vashington, Franklin and "Honest Old Abe" -
Dhey vas all been aroundt since dot first Plymouth babe.
I vas only a Deutscher, budt I dells you vot!
I pelief, every dhime, in sooch "failures" as dot.

Vaa marriage a failure? I ask my Katrine,
Und she look off me so dot I feels pooty mean.
Dben she say: "Meester Strauss, shust come here eef you blease,"
Und she dake me vhere Yawcob and leedle Loweese
By dheir shnug trundle bed vus shust saving dheir prayer,
Und she say, mit a smile, "Vas dhere some failures dhere?"
