Now Moses and Aaron were talking of the times,
And Aaron said to Moses, "Let us make some rhymes
On the ways of this wicked world;
It's not a bed of roses;
No better than it ought to be."
"You speak the truth," says Moses.

Says Aaron to Moses, "Now really it is sad,
To see our aristocracy going to the bad,
"Why ev'ry day a big divorce
Some high-toned swell exposes;
The ladies often are to blame."
"I know they are," says Moses.

Says Aaron to Moses, "If marriage laws are thus,
So very quickly broken, why make such a fuss?
Let's do without such easy laws-
Then, when a chap proposes.
Why he can take a girl at once!"
"I'm in for that," says Moses.

Says Aaron to Moses. "It really gives me pain
To see so many people wasting all they gain;
They send it to the heathen,
That's what ev'ry one supposes.
Ah! why not send the coin to us?"
"We know too much," says Moses.

Says Aaron to Moses, "When Talmage took a walk,
He thought he'd stir the people, just to make a talk.
But now his people bounce him out-
The cry where e'er he goes, is
'See, there's the man that caught them all.'"
"Excepting me," says Moses.

Says Aaron to Moses, "They tell me on the stage
Borne Improper pieces now are all the rage;
There's one that's by the author of
The Black Crook and the Roses;
It's very naughty, I've been told
"Let's go and see," says Moses.

Encore Verse
Says Aaron to Moses, "This song has been encored,
And now 'tis most important that people shan't be bored,
So while you listen, worthy friends,
The plan that I propose is,
That when you leave the hall to-night,
You'll think of me and Moses."
