The Day We Went Tobogganing.
As sung by Tony Pastor.

The other day ray girl I met.
She's just the dearest little pet,
She asked me if I'd witnessed yet,
The fun where folks toboggan.
And so, to be in style, I dress'd-
A blanket made my coat and vest-
And such a crazy sight was I,
The boys they shouted, "See the guy!"
We quickly reached the icy spot.
The sport, I tell you, was red hot!
The laughing couples by us shot
That day we went tobogganing.

The girls were there in all their charms,
Around the chaps they placed their arras,
Twas just to hush the wild alarms
They had where folks toboggan!
At length we started down the slide,
And like a flash began to glide;
My girl she hugged me, like the rest,
I tried to do my level best;
But half way down, while we did dash,
There was a very awful smash'
And on the ice we fell, ker splash,
That day we went tobogganing!

When I got up, I looked around,
And this was what I straightway found;
My nose was broken, my limbs unsound,
Up there where folks toboggan!
My eyes were of the rain-bow's hue!
I'd lost my purse and "ticker, " too!
Let others go enjoy the fun;
With this new-fangled sport I'm done!
So take your "best girl "where you will,
But if you don't want her to kill.
Take my advice, avoid a "spill
When you go out tobogganing!
