The Picadilly Johnny with the Little Glass Eye.
Copyright, 1895, by Francis. Day A Banter.
Worda and music by Harry B. Norris.

The set of boys I chum with are the best known set downtown.
And in that set a noted chap Is young Algernon Brown:
He's Just come into heaps of coin, he don t know what he's worth,
And all the ladies say he is the nicest boy on earth.

He's very well known. Is Algy, to the ladles on the stage.
Such a Jolly good chap is Algy, Just now he's all the rage;
And a Jolly big fav'rlte. Algy, with the barmaids at the "Crl,"
He's very well known, is Algy, as the Piccadilly Johnny with
the little glass eye.

He'll drive a girl to Harlem, as some other Johnnies do,
He buys her p'r'aps, a diamond ring, a watch and bracelet, too;
Girls say they'll never leave him, and they keep their word and don't,
And while his cash holds out, you bet your Sunday hat they wont't -Cho

He goes to all the theatres, where he knows the Coryphees,
He takes them out to supper, also buys them large bouquets;
They call him "Algy, darling." to his face-the usual way,
But when they chat behind the scenes, poor Algy's called, a "Jay."-Cho.
