Some Things that I'd Like to See.

The problem of life is quite hard to solve,
In the world we see things that are strange;
But if I had my way And could do as I please,
Soon you would see quite a change;
A poor man, if honest. I'd try to raise up.
And rich rogues in State's prison would be;
So now to-night I will sing in my song
Of some things that I'd like to see-

For if I had my way and could do as I say,
Quite a change all around there would be;
I'll not keep you long, and to-night in my song
I'll sing of what I'd like to see.

The political ring who plunder our land,
Would not have such a soft thing,
I'd treat them as a poor rogue is treated,
And send them for life to Sing Sing.
Now there's Jennie Cramer, that she was killed
In cold blood, we all must agree;
Let justice be done and her murderers hung,
Is something that I'd like to see.-Chorus.

For the rights of the ballot the ladies now shout,
And female orators everywhere roam;
Tis the right of a woman-at least so I think-
To attend to her family at home;
The ladies wear ulsters, to look like the men-
And in fashions a change there should be-
The ladies to dress as our grandmothers did,
Is something that I'd like to see.-Chorus.
