The Fitzsimmons and Corbett Fight.
Tune-"There'll Come a Time."
By Daniel E. Krueger.
Some years ago Jim and Fitzsimmons,
All that they did was talk about fight;
Until one day they got together,
'Twas then that Fitz sent Jim down the pike;
Yes, yes, my man, 'twas out at Carson,
St. Patrick's Day, the sports were In line;
I drop'd my dough, but soon I'll regain it.
When Sharkey meets Fitz, boys, there'll come a time.
There'll come a time some day, when Sharkey holds full sway,
He is the only real thing, boys, keep that In mind;
Fitz the champion now-won't be long, I'll allow,
Sharkey's the next one to land, boys, there'll come a time.
Corbett, no doubt, was broken-hearted,
He thought the game was really dead sure;
Until he got that awful left soaker,
'Twas more than Jim could ever endure;
Give credit boys to Jim for his fighting.
But don't forget John "L" In his prime;
Among the best you'll not find his equal.
But Sharkey Is next, boys, there'll come a time.- Chorus.
