Words And Music by Harry Greenbank.

Little Jimmy was a scholar, and his aptitude was such
That his parents And preceptors were afraid he'd know too much;
So his grandmamma said, "Bless him, I will take him up to town,
And we'll go to Captain Boynton's and they'll waterchute us down."

Oh! Jimmy on the chute, boys, won't we have a day,
Going out with grandma, granny's getting gay!
Down in half a slap-bang, wet from top to toe.
That's the way they chute 'em at the "water-show."

Now when Jimmy saw that water-chute he laughed until he cried,
Just to see the girls yell out And grab the fellows by their side;
And he said to gentle grandma, "This will suit me to a 'T,'
When I get up there And have those girls a-grabbing hold of me."-Refrain.

Then he took his seat with grandma and they started off all right,
But a pretty girl beside him screamed, "You better bold on tight!"
They were flying down so fast that Jimmy's head began to swim,
So he clawed on to the pretty girl And she clawed on to him.-Refrain.

But the splash was so terrific that his heart began to quake,
As his grandma turned a somersault and fell into the lake;
So he held on to the pretty girl and hugged her tighter still.
For he thought the world was ended und he hadn't made his will.-Refrain.

With a boat-hook poor old grandmamma was fished up, safe and sound;
But the pretty girl And Jimmy in a close embrace were found.
In their terrible alarm they wouldn't hear of letting go,
And they're hugging one another still, for anything I know.-Refrain.
