I've an older brother Jack, and unless he gets the sack
From the place he's working at in Union Square.
He will drive our fam'ly mad, for my mother and my dad
Now to speak above a whisper do not dare.
Ever since he went to work, And became a shipping clerk,
It's astonishing to see him, I declare;
I'm as quiet as a mouse, and dread to go inside the house,
Since my brother got a job in Union Square.

For all night long he roams around the town.
And comes home when he likes;
He's so proud that ev'ry night at supper
For some pie and pudding he strikes.
Now to hear him talk, you would think New York
Wasn't big enough to live in, I declare;
And our home, that once was bright,
Seems as dark as darkest night.
Since my brother got a job in Union Square.

I could scarce control myself, when the brazen forward elf,
Shipped my little sister Maggie in the face;
You can bei. if I was strong, that he wouldn't boss as long,
For I'd quickly make him understand his place.
Just as soon as I get through with my school and studies, too,
I am going to try and get a job somewhere;
And away I mean to roam, for I cannot live at home.
Since my brother got a job in Union Square.- Chorus.
