THE MIDWAY PALOMA.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by James Thornton. Music adapted from the Spanish.
Oh, Santiago, and de Lumbago,
And the Senorita dat will pull-a de leg-o;.
Oh, Mexico and the Mexicanao,
And de Dago sella de ripe bannano;
de night go and do Dago from Italio,
Standing on the corner, selling the hot tamalio;
Hidalgo Espagnola from San Marlio,
And "the man that broke the bank at Monte Carlo;"
And the mandolins will ring, and Signora will sing
"Daddy won't buy me a boa-wow-wow-wow,
"After the ball-o," "Collar and elbow,"
"He never cares to wander-o," "De cat came back-o,"
"The man in the moon-o "marry him soon-o, alia.
Oh, cigaretto, and de tigaro,
Wheeling, West Virginia, in a wheelbarrio;
Oh, Silver Bill and the Buffalo Billio.
I don't know how much I owe, Tit Willio.
A young girl went to supper with my brother-o,
Now one of his legs is longer than the other-o.
When she left him he didn't have a sou-i-o,
For she was one of the "Two little girls in blue-i-o."
Oh, he bought her a ring, and the maiden will sing,
There's a jay born each minute or two-i,
Minute or two-i-o.
Oh, Carmencita, Regaloncita,
And Paquetta, I'm going to meet her just down the street-a,
With her big feet-a, never looked sweeter, alia.
