Everything Comes to Him Who Waits.
Copyright, MDCCCXCVI, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Charles Graham.

The good things of this world will come, let ev'ry one have patience;
For instance, look at brother Bill, who looks for work all day,
While looking for a job one day a chimney fell upon him,
And as they dug him from the ruins, somebody heard him say:

Chorus.
"Ev'rything comes to him who waits." is a Buying old and true:
If I wasn't here when the Chimney fell, it might have dropped on you;
I look broke up, and I feel it too, I'm in the sorest straits,
But now I am sure that everything comes to him who waits.

While looking at a fight one day between two big 'longshoremen,
Dear brother Billy interfered, to make them friends again,
But suddenly they turned On Bill, and gave him a good pounding,
And when they had him nearly dead, Bill sung this sad refrain:

Refrain.
"Everything comes to him who waits." is a saying old and true:
When I interfered, for to make them friends, they kicked me black and blue.
Since Bill got whipped by those two big men, all big men Billy hates,
And now he is sure that everything comes to him who waits.

Dear Billy had a girl named Nell, she was a reg'lar corker;
He loved her to his heart's content whene'er be got a show;
One night she told him to look out, for her "old man" was coming,
And suddenly the "old man "came and helped dear Willie go.

Chorus.
"Everything comes to him who waits," is a saying old and true;
Our Willie has given up seeing Nell on account of papa's shoe;
He wanted Nell for to be his wife, but wailed till 'twas late.
And now he is sure that everything comes to him who waits.

One day dear Willie grabbed a watch and quickly got to running;
The man who lost the watch did yell, "My time it flies away;
A fat policeman on the corner saw dear Willie coming,
And as he landed in his arms somebody heard him say:

Chorus.
"Everything comes to him who waits," is a saving old and true;
If I wasn't hear for to catch this man, what would the people do?
Oh, now I'll be made a captain, sure I'm great among my males,
And now I am sure that everything comes to him who waits.
