Words and Music by Will Rossiter.

A song on topics of the day is all the rage, you bet.
To have a catchy ending line is what we try to get;
To have a phrase not used before, that is the scheme, you see.
For ours we do no pardon beg, but excuse me, excuse me.

Excuse me, excuse me, is said to be right;
You know it will often prevent row or fight.
For rudeness or insult, bad manners, you see,
It comes in so nicely, excuse me, excuse me.

Now those two words, you will agree, are heard in every place,
It's grown to he the proper thing among the human race;
You have a man walk over you, though careful you may he,
In a crowd you have your hit smashed in, excuse me, excuse me.-Chorus.

If getting theatre tickets, men will always take their turn,
Though for a place ten yards ahead with all your heart you yearn,
But if perchance a lady comes, wants is seats for matinee,
She'll coolly push in front of you, saying, excuse me, excuse me.

It is a very funny thing that Tascott can't be found;
There's time enough since he got loose to have run him to the ground;
I've asked a dozen officers the cause to tell to me,
They always change the subject with-excuse me, excuse me.-Chorus.

I know some actors in this line, and hear them often say,
It's hard to please each one and all, or to whom they should play;
Some say the parquet should he first, and some the balcony,
For us, up there, they are our choice, *excuse me, excuse me.- Chorus.

*Said looking to lower part of house.
