Tune-"After the Ball."

Into the ring stepped Corbett the bold,
Bright as a daisy, true as true gold;
Now may the best man win, was the cry,
When to his corner Mitchell did fly.
Corbett led out, the brave Yankee boy,
Friends wildly cheered and shouted with joy;
Fiercely the champion countered with might,
Think of the losers, after the fight.

After the fight was over, after the battle's won,
Many the praises spoken of the grand sparring done.
Here's to the gallant winner, hero of brawn and might!
Here's to brave Corbett, the hero-after the fight!

Corbett of valor, true, boys, and tried,
Thought but of winning, naught else beside;
Stood by his colors, manly and game,
England's hold champion he did the same.
Like mighty giants, fast fell the strokes,
Bravely both stood there, like giant oaks;
One scored a "knock down ", friends to delight,
Who'll be the loser, after the fight.- Chorus.

Rounds quick but few bravely they fought,
Tricks that he knew not Mitchell was taught;
John L. well knows a "sprinter" is he,
This champion boxer from o'er the sea.
Soon from their corners, to round the last,
Came both with mettle rarely surpassed;
Won had the best man, gallant and bright,
Mitchell was knocked out, after the fight.- Chorus.
