Copyright, 1894, by J. Aldrich Libbey.
Written and Composed by Felix McGlennon.

Four of us started in life together, four of us met at school,
Clung to each other in all sorts of weather, broke ev'ry golden rule;
Tommy and Jack and Bill and I rarely apart were seen,
Always in mischief, always in trouble, still on each other we'd lean.

Dear old boys-boys that I went to school with,
Dear old boys-Tommy and Jack and Bill;
Now we're men, still we will cling together.
We were comrades in days gone by and we're comrades still.

Four of as started one night on plunder, stripping the orchard bare,
Ah, how the schoolmaster started in wonder when he found we were there-
Tommy and Jack and Bill and I, four of us in disgrace;
Each little urchin got such a birching, all on the usual place.-Chorus.

Four of as went from the school together-ah, how the years have passed,
Still we've been true in the stormiest weather, still will our friendship last;
Tommy and Jack and Bill and I, ne'er shall our love grow cold,
Helping each other, loving each other, as in the bright days of old.- Chorus.
