Parody-Written and Snug by Billy Johnson.

Why are you sad, Grover, our darling?
Why are those tears falling to-day?
Why do you look at, them books so strangely?
Have they done wrong, tell us we pray?
No, no, my boys, them books they learned me,
All that I know from day to day,
All that I fear some day I'll leave them,
Just as I did eight years ago.

But there'll come a time some day when Chicago will change Its ways,
They'll have good men to guide it from day to day;
Remember all I said, workingmen then will get ahead;
Always remember Bryan's story- he says, there'll come a time.

Let us know all, Grover, our darling?
Tell us, we pray, of work to-day?
Where has it gone, why did it leave as?
Why is its name never mentioned here?
I never worked since you've been In,
Nor has a friend that lives close to me;
I'd give my life only to see it,
Tell us, dear Grover, will there come a time.

Yes, there'll come a time some day, workingmen will have their own way,
They'll have good men to guide them from day to day.
Remember all I said, workingmen will get ahead;
Always remember Bryan's story, for there'll come a time.
