American Old Time Song Lyrics: 44 Have You Heard The Latest
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 44
Have You Heard the Latest?
By Geo. E. Shertzer.
They say every one has a sweetheart,
I believe that's the way the old song goes;
That Annie Laurie was on the Bowery
With McGinty's best suit of clothes
That the Little Fisher Maiden
Didn't have a cent,
Went down on Thompson street
To see how Hogan paid his rent.
They say that Grover Cleveland
Has set the workingmen free,
That Geo. M. Pullman
Is sojourning in The Lighthouse by the Sea;
That the packers at Omaha
Are striking for their rights:
That Maggie Murphy is whistling
Where Is My Wandering Boy To-night?
They say that Browne and Corey
Have joined hands with Debs,
That Company M at Chicago
Refused to eat with "scabs";
They say that The Cows are in the Corn,
And also, that Channcy Depew,
While riding on the Elevated,
Met the Two Little Girls in Blue.
They say that the strikers at Chicago
Only struck for their proper pay,
That'll won't be long until Pullman
Will be in a grave Ten Thousand Miles Away;
That the coming leaders of our country
Will be Debs, Coxey and Browne,
And that Geo. M. Pullman
Needn't think that he can keep the workingman down.
