The Man that Broke the Brokers Down in Wall Street.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by William Jerome. Music by D. Fitzgibbon.
A happy individual, without a single care;
With an independent air, causing ev'ry one to stare;
The brokers and the bankers, they are pulling out their hair;
In Wall Street I have raised an awful flare
Among the famous little "Bulls And Bears."
And when I walk along Broadway, I keep the sunny side;
With lots of Yankee pride and a very English stride;
The ladies hearts' go pit-a-pat, and people all take off their hats
To the man who broke the brokers down in Wall Street.
And ever since the day I chanced to call the lucky turn,
For my company ladies yearn-their society I spurn;
They thought I was a little lamb, with plenty yet to learn,
Until the day I broke up elicit concern,
And now I've lots of money, boys, to burn.- Chorus.
