When the Good Times Come Again.
Copyright, 1894, by Frank Harding.
Words by Jos. P. Skilly. Music by Con O'Mara.

The rich complain at fortune's frown, the poor grow poorer still,
The spendthrift saves his pennies now, to pay his lodging bill;
The miser counts his secret store, his greed he can't restrain,
He hopes to save a trifle more when the good times come again.

Chorus.
Then keep your spirits light and gay, and sing this hopeful strain,
We'll all be happy by-and-by, when the good times come again;
Then keep your spirits light and gay, and sing this hopeful strain,
We'll all be happy by-and-by, when the good times come again,

The man of toil is now at rest, his rent is coming due,
His purse is empty, but his heart is honest, proud and true;
he smiles at each succeeding cross, and does not sigh in vain,
He knows the tide of life will change when the good times come again.- Chorus.

The child sits on her father's knee, her kiss he can't refuse;
" Just see my little toe, papa-I want a pair of shoes."
Too well he Knows her lightest want, but now she asks in vain,
All he can say is, "Yes, my dear, when the good times come again." - Chorus.

The lover looks with wistful eyes upon his bride to be,
She begs him to be good and wise till brighter days they see:
They kiss and part, while in each heart sweet hopes of joy remain,
Some day they'll wed, but they must wait till the good times come again. - Cho.
