Words by Byron S. Andrews. Music by Hurry T. Von.

I will tell you of a chap I know, you all must know him, too,
At some time or another he has had his chance at you,
He knows all kind of people and he is so wondrous wise,
He's an Information bureau in disguise.
If you're looking for a long lost friend, and don't know where to go,
Just meet this chap and ask him, he wilt put you right, I know,
As an up-to-date directory he really takes the prize,
He's the only thing that happened. Who? why Mister Johnny Wise.

Mister Johnny Wise, as you may surmise.
Contradict him on your life, if you do "twill end in strife.
People at him cry, when he passes by,
There's the man that knows it all. who? Mister Johnny Wise.

You will find him at the race track, too, he's ready with his tip,
On railroad trains or trolleys you can meet him every trip,
He'll give you points on base ball, tell you who will win the game,
Our next candidate for President he'll name.
He's the man who first invented those great words. "I told you so,"
Spring something new. he'll say, "Old man. I heard that long ago."
And from politics and poker, down to baking pumpkin pies,
You can't lose him for a minute. Who? why Mister Johnny Wise.- Cho.
