Permit me here to represent
Some great and noble men,
My photographic studio.
I trust, may pleasure give.
Forever in our memory
These noted men all live.

First, the Corsican brothers,
As on the stage they boast,
There is a very cutting scene between
Fabian and the ghost;
It fills his breast with woe,
And when he goes to seal the letter,
I think he stood just so.

A statue now I'll show you,
Beloved by every one;
The father of the nation,
The great George Washington:
May many follow in his path,
And to their country prove no foe;
So hail Columbia's warrior,
As I represent him so.

Now we have Governor Hoffman,
Who has done all he can
To stop the great excise law,
And aid the workingman;
He's an able politician,"
And has gained himself applause.
So I think now here you'll give a cheer
For Hoffman and his cause.

Then there's General U. S. Grant,
As I'm about to show,
Who led his troops to glory,
And struck terror to the foe;
If any foreign enemy
His trumpet dares to blow,
We'll find him once more in front,
Standing, I think, just so.

Now, with your kind permission,
I'll introduce to you
The chief-man of the nation,
Andrew Johnson, good and true:
Many have fought hard against him,
But he says it's all no go;
And when he faced his enemy,
He stood, I think, just so.
