GRAFTED INTO THE ARMY.

Our Jimmy has gone for to live in a tent.
They have grafted him into the army;
He finally puckered up courage and went,
When they grafted him into the army.
I told them the child was too young: alas!
At the Captain's fore quarters, they say, he would pass,
They train'd him up well in the infantry class-
So they grafted him into the army.

Chorus.
O Jimmy, farewell! your brothers fell
'Way down in Alabarmy;
I thought they would spare a lone widder's heir,
But they grafted him into the army.

Dressed up in his unicorn, dear little chap!
They have grafted him into the army;
It seems but a day since he sot in my lap;
But they grafted him into the army:
And these are the trousers he used to wear-
The very same buttons-the patch and the tear-
But Uncle Same gave him a bran new pair,
When they grafted him into the army.-Chorus.

Now, in my provisions I see him revealed,
They have grafted him into the army;
A picket beside the contented field,
They have grafted him into the army.
He looks kinder sickish -begins to cry,
A big volunteer standing right in his eye!
Oh! what if the ducky should up and die.
Now they've grafted him Into the army.- Chorus.
