The Popular Man About Town.
Copyright. 1895, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by G. L. Spaulding.
He's created to make every heart ache
And break any one who dares question his place,
And he strolls here and there, with a dignified air
And a satisfied look on his face;
Nature's own fashion plate, modeled right up to date,
As demurely he walks up and down;
The pride of us all, and the "chappies" down-fall,
Is the popular man about town.
Every day, on Broadway, with a strut that is stylish and grand;
Debonair is his air, and everything at his command;
Glances sly from his eye make a flutter betoken renown,
Looking neat, smiling sweet, that's the popular man about town.
Whether home or abroad, ladies land and applaud
All his actions and study his ways;
If he alters his walk, why the men have to stalk
Just the same, because he is the craze;
As the very real thing, with the grace of a king,
There's no rival disputing his crown;
The clubs all refuse to accept any dues
From this popular man about town- Chorus.
