In now topical songs we must freeze out the worn
Old gagleta-( Whistle)-you know!
For we can't use the "chestnutty "stuff that is torn
To raglets-(Whistle)-you know!
So if this little sample wins your lively praise,
Just yell out for more, for the singer it pays;
Call me out forty times, And next week I can raise
My salary-{Whistle)-you know!

Yesterday I was skirmishing for a good drink,
Just a "trickle "-(Whistle)-you know!
When my pockets I searched how my spirit did sink,
Not a nickle-{Whistle)-you know!
But with elegant nerve for a drink I did call,
And explained I was "broke "after sampling a "ball;"
Then the boss wiped the floor with the man with a "gaul,"
Who was it?-{Whistle)-you know!

Once I knew And I fancied a beautiful maid
With money-(Whistle)-you know!
And my language therefore was quite largely inlaid
With honey-(Whistle)-you know!
So I asked her one day, just my chances to see,
If to marry a poor man she'd ever agree?
"I would if he had lots of money, " says she,
And I vanished-{Whistle)-you know!

But I didn't grieve long, for I "caught on "again
For a "flyer "-(Whistle)-you know!
And I made the girl believe I was truest of men,
I'm a liar-(Whistle)-you know!
When of marriage I spoke, she said, "Pa I must suit;"
So she brought him right in, and pa flourished his boot,
Then I opened the door and endeavored to scoot,
But he "got there "-(Whistle)-you know!
