Oh! have you heard the latest craze? boomp-a-diddy-boom-boom-boomb;
It's sung in all the leading plays, boomp-a-diddy-boom-boom-boom;
I met a swell dressed all ensuite; he'd russet slippers on his feet;
I asked him for the time of day; he pulled his watch out right away
And stared at me in a vacant way, And all that I could hear him say, was:

Br-r-r-nm, br-r-r-um, br-r-r-um-bum,
Pa-did-dy, pa-did-dy, bing-bang-boom-a-diddy,
Br-r-r-um, br-r-r-um, br-r-r-um-bum,
Boomp-a-did-dy, boomp-a-did-dy, bing-bang-boom.

I met a "copper" off his beat, boomp-a-did-dy hoom-boom-boomb;
Two men were fighting up the street, boomp-a-did-dy boom-boom-boom;
I said, "Will you please stop that row?" they must be tired of fighting now;
He gazed at me in mild surprise, and a vacant light shone in his eyes;
I think that light is shining yet, for the only answer I could get was:- Chorus.

A gay young soldier had a "mash," boomp-a-did-dy, boom-boom-boom:
He brushed her cheek with his mustache, boomp-a-did-dy, boom-boom-boom;
He swore to her he would be true, although he had a wife or two;
She trusted him, her heart was stout, but you know how these things turn out;
He sailed away this warrior bold, And the song she's singing now, I'm told, is:

Pray, don't meddle in politics, boomp-a-did-dy, boom-boom-boom;
They are so full of nasty tricks, boomp-a-did-dy, boom-boom-boom;
To gain your vote, they promise well, and so you give it-"What a sell I"
The party goes in with a shout, and the other party, it goes out,
And when in power asked for an office-to thousands their reply is this: Cho.

Note.-First verse to be sung as a Dude; second verse as a Policeman; third
verse as a Soldier; fourth verse as a "Man all broken up."
