-  "Maneater (tuberculosis)" "This song affords a graphic description of the dreaded disease, which was then prevalent among the immigrant population in crowded New York City tenaments." "Such a sickness eats at our lungs, and takes away all one's strength. How hard it is to work and to take care of our families. And then this man-eater, this terrible decourer, attacks parents and children. Tuberculosis is a plague among us." Source: Heskes, Irene, Yiddish American Popular Songs, 1895-1950. (General)
