THE NEWSBOYS OF CHICAGO
Copyright, 1896, by The Temple Music Co.
Words by Reginald Mowbray. Music by Lutie St. Clair.
The newsboys of Chicago are greatest in the world;
You'll find no better newsboys, wherever flag's unfurled;
Their hearts are ever stoutest, all trouble they defy,
And oh, their voice is loudest, whene'er you hear them cry:
Here you have your morning papers, all about the crimes-
Tribune, Inter-Ocean. Herald, Morning Record, Times:
In the evening hear them calling, none can these boys match:
Five o'clock News, Journal, Post, Chicago Mail, Dispatch.
As bright as copper pennies, as honest as the day,
The newsboys of Chicago adorn the city's way;
In sunshine or in shadow, and always free from blues.
They only strive to give us the very latest news.- Chorus.
Oh, people of this city, remember now and then
The newsboys of Chicago shall be our worthy men,
For to these ragged heroes, no task to hard to try,
And honesty rings cheery in every passing cry:- Chorus.
