By J. W. Kelley.

How often we find that small little things
Will bring to we pleasure or pain.
So each little drop must help to make up
A wonderful shower of rain;
The largest of cables were first little threads.
And it does seem a curious thing
What wonderful things are often attached
To a small little bit of a string.

It's a curious subject I take for my song,
But no tears to your eyes will I bring,
But I'll show you some ways, almost every day.
Smart people are caught on the string.

No doubt you have heard of the great cable road.
An Invention that is hard to beat;
So the people who live at the ends of the town
Will not have to wear out their feet:
Cars run up on one track, then down the other-
Folks up and down town they will bring;
Don't you think that it's funny you have io pay money
To be dragged around on the string?- Chorus.

You often have seen some spooney young man
Near crazed through his love for his girl,
And until she says, "Yes, I will be thine own,"
His brain never ceases to whirl;
But when he is married she thinks he done wrong,
To boss him she thinks quite the thing;
He finds that she lied and wishes he'd died
The day she got him on the string.-Chorus.
