IT WILL BE MINE BY-AND-BY.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Joseph Bart.

There is a queer expression that you oft hear people say:
It will be mine by-and-by, by-And-by;
They furnish up a house and home, weekly installments pay,
It will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by.
Bank president he smiled and stroked his curly black mustache,
he said, "A week from Thursday I think I will 'cut a dash';
I will let them have the bank and building, but as for the cash-
It will be mine by-And-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"It will be mine by-and-by, it will be mine by-and-by;
To some quiet spot I will take the whole lot,
It will be mine by-And-by."

A little boy said, as he gazed up at an apple green:
"It will he mine by-and-by, by-and-by;
I'll climb right up and get it now, I'm sure I'll not be seen;
It will be mine by-And-by, by-and-by."
he got the apple, then he quickly started down the tree,
A farmer stood there, singing, "Come, my love, I wait for thee."
In his hand he held a stick: the boy said, "That is meant for me,
It will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"It will be mine by-and-by, it will be mine by-and-by;
That stick he has got, if I want It or not,
It will be mine by-And-by."

A preacher saw a school-boy with a snow-ball, and he said,
"It will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by;
He'll let me have it, I feel sure, somewhere about the head,
It will be mine by-And-by, by-and-by."
This preacher went to Africa, the cannibals to teach;
They liked this missionary and stuck to him like a leech.
"Now, I choose him, for I saw him first," replied the eldest chief,
"He will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"he will be mine by-and-by, he will be mine by-and-by;
To-morrow, at two, we'll have missionary stew.
He will be mine by-and-by."

A young man kissed his fiancée good night and murmur'd low,
"She will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by;
She'll make a loving wife, we will be happy, that I know;
She will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by."
They married, and her mother said with them she'd make her home;
She did, and for a year he dared not call his soul his own,
And he said, "If I can only meet her outside once, alone,
She will be mine by-And-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"She will be mine by-and-by, she will be mine by-and-by;
To St. Peter she'll roam and with him make her home,
She will be mine by-and-by."

A dudish young man murmured, as a pretty lady passed,
"She will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by."
He buttoned up his long frock coat, put on his large eye-glass,
"She will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by."
"I beg your pardon," he remarked, "will you to supper go "
She was to meet her husband, but that dudie did not know;
he came up just then, said to his wife. "Dear, home you quickly go,

he will be mine by-And-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"He will be mine by-and-by, he will be mine by-and-by;
I soon will have done with this chrysanthemum,
He will be mine by-and-by."

A silk umbrella in the hall, it's pretty and It's sew,
It will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by; |
I've always longed to have one, and I think that it will do,
It will he mine by-and-by, by-And-by.
While walking out with William (* my wife), at a milliner's I (she) gazed
Almost an hour, at a hat. "Are you coming?" William said (home? I raved),
As away from it he (I) dragged me (her), Ah, I (she) turned and sighed And said,
"It will be mine by-and-by, by-and-by.

Chorus.
"It will be mine by-and-by, It will be mine by-and-by;
'Twas stylish and nice, eighteen dollars the price;
It will be mine by-and-by."
