It's a Good Thing, Push It Along.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Gussie L. Davis.

New by-words and expressions we hear 'most ev'ry day.
For by-words are like fashions-they do not come to stay:
The latest one I'll mention, with topics of the day,
When on the street just listen, and then you'll hear some one say;

It's a good thing, push it along,
It's a good thing, push it along;
These words, I declare, you'll hear everywhere,
"It's a good thing, push it along."

'Tis one year since our marriage, we have a bouncing boy,
I bought a baby carriage for this dear little toy:
We take him for an airing, my wife and I each day,
I have to push the carriage, and the boys all yell and say:

"It's a good thing, push it along,
It's a good thing, push it along;
You look awful sweet, and you cant be beat­It's a good thing, push it along."

The great Lexow committee brought many truths to light,
Police in New York City have not been acting right;
A dozen police captains already they've turned down­'Twould be nice to investigate each city, state And town.

They're a good thing, push them along,
They're a good thing, send them along;
I bet with surprise they'd open your eyes­They're a good thing, push them along.

The Wilson bill and tariff the people do not like,
And last year everybody who worked was on a strike;
But there's one chance yet left us to get out of this fix,
Just make McKinley president in eighteen ninety-six.

He's a good thing, push him along,
He's a good thing, push him along;
If this is in vain, we'll all starve again­He's a good thing, push him along.
