When Your Pride Has a Tumble.
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
As Sung in "The Gaiety Girl."

When your pride has had a tumble, and you've set the cap too high,
Though at fate you're apt to grumble, never sit and sulk and eigh;
Let your little heart beat faster, keep your temper, if you can;
When you fail to get the master be contented with the man. Ah!-

This is how, at home, things go-tra la la la la la la la la.
And I think good taste we show-tra la la la la la la la la.
This is how, at home, things go-tra la la la la la la la la.
As for money, we don't care,
But too much love one must not share.

In default of silk or satin, you must don a simple dress;
Wanting room to swing a cat in, pray be satisfied with less.
When denied the gold of Yankee then the humble copper take;
For a crust of bread say thankee, when you can't get currant cake. Ah- Chorus.
