MARIE HALTON'S LAUGHING SONG.
Copyright, 1897, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words by Jack Prendergast. Music by Chas. Delatorre.

At night the stars are all aglow, and bald heads shine in the front row,
Stars above, bald heads below are very much alike, you know;
But tell me why and tell me true, or give it up and I'll tell you;
Well, they're in the self-same plight, because both scintillate at night, ha,

Refrain.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

The lord sat staring at his plate, he couldn't get it through his pate,
How stars could ever sin-till-late, nor how bald heads could scintillate;
And Rueben, too, was rather phased, and looked about him as though dazed,
But with the judge 'twas different, be laughed, And this is how it went: Ha.

Refrain
I nearly died, and Julie, too, we laughed and laughed. and so would you,
The judge laughed till his face was blue, while Rueben glum and glummer
grew;
At length his lordship got it straight, and he began to scintillate,
The sight was much too good to miss, his lordship's laugh was just like this:
Ha,--Refrain

His lordship said he'd come again, though Julie said he gave her pain;
The old judge ordered more champagne, and missed his last suburban train;
At last my Reuben awoke, and then there was a sight for gods and men,
For when my Reuben saw the point, be laughed himself quite out of joint: Ha,
-Refrain.
