WHEN GROVER CLEVELAND GETS A BABY BOY.
Copyright, 1895, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Capt. Jack Crawford.

Some funny things will happen, just as sure as you are born,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy;
The sun will in the evening rise, and set in early morn,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
The rivers all will flow up stream, and fish will fly in air;
The women will not turn to see what other women wear,
And New York's stock exchange will daily opened be with prayer,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

A railway underneath the great Atlantic will be run,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy;
And coal will weigh exactly twenty hundred to the ton,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
Girls will not judge their lovers by the salaries they get;
To tailors, for their clothes, the dudes will cease to run in debt.
And leading politicians on election will not bet.
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

Queen Lil will wear a crown again 'way out in Honaloo,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy;
While Roosevelt and D. B. Hill will pull together, too,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
Chinese, instead of chop-sticks, then will use a knife and fork,
And Croker build a castle in his native county Cork,
And Tammany again will run the City of New York,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

Fitzsimmons will be champion of the world, I do not think,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy;
And breakers of the Sunday Law will Roosevelt hoodwink.
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
Defender will be beaten by the scow across the way,
The cup will go to England, and will there forever stay,
And British sporting dudes will give the Yankee boys fair play,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

Tom Ochiltree will teach a Bible class in Sunday-school,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
New York and London buncos will observe the golden rule,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
Tammany and Parkhurst will with General Booth parade;
The colonels of Kentucky will drink only lemonade,
While Wilson And McKinley will double up in trade,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

At your signal the conductors will the street-cars promptly stop,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
And rejected politicians from their parties will not flop,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
The trumpet notes of Gabriel will o'er the earth resound;
The present legislation on the silver will be sound,
And free traders within the gates of heaven may be found.
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

St. Peter will get lonely and call Satan up to chat.
When Grover Cleveland gels a baby boy.
Ben Harrson will then discard his grandpa's famous hat,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
The dudes will tire of vaudeville and living picture art:
Tom Platt will find the White-House chair and never from it part,
While Anson and his base-ball team will win right from the start,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

A woman will not vote, for her rights she will not strike.
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy;
And bloomers she'll discard for skirts when riding on a bike,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
She'll leave her hat at home when to the theatre she'll go,
Beneath her monstrous sleeves a pair of angels wings she'll grow,
And if a titled foreigner should pop, she'll answer "no,"
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.

The Indians will be governed by men of nerve and sense.
When Grover Cleveland gels a baby boy;
And hypocrites will cease to be a government expense,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
George Gould and Henry Gould will do a double song and dance,
And girls at their reflections in shop windows will not glance,
And ladies on the avenue will promenade in pants,
When Grover Cleveland gets a baby boy.
