Written and Sung by Gus Williams.

Jake vos a coward, born so, I subbose;
A gread big fellar, vid a turned-ub nose,
Afraid of flies, und if he saw a snake,
Vould stand and shiver und shake und shake;
Ven tunder rolled he'd go und hide his head,
Und gry for hours, at leasd so I've heard said,
De slightesd noise vould gwickly make him bawl,
Jake vos a coward, a coward dot's all.

Bud dere are dimes ven danger id is near,
Ven cowards rise like heroes forged all fear,
Und ven de yellow fever came to town,
Dot dread disease dot sdrikes his vicdims down,
Mudders fled from children, husbands from vives,
Forgedding flesh und plood, all fled for dere lives; '
Did Jake deserd his family, vife und kid
Und leave dem dere to die? You bed he did.
