OLD MOSE SONG.
OLD MOSE SONG.
Sung by Wm. A. WRAY, the Celebrated Banjoist.
I'm down on running with der old machine,
As sure as my name is Mose,
I'm down on the Corporation,
Cause they won't give us any hose:
Bill Sykessy's got his "putteys" on,
And bound to sail with Sal,
But Sal's no business with my Lize—
Ain't she a gallus gal.
O, ain't I gallus,
And gose it good and strong,
If any of you think you can take me down,
Why don't you come along.
If any of the hounds insults my Lize,
You can take and bet a pile,
I'll lay for the lofing old foo-foo,
And have a fight or spile:
You had ought to see her swing herself
When she goes out a-walking,
She wears her hat so gallus—
What! there ain't no use a talking.
I met a bummer the other night,
Standing on our hose,
Says he, "I ain't afraid of you,
Although your name is Mose:'
I hauled right off, and gave him one,
That raised a mighty fuss—
I'm down on all outsiders,
And I'm bound to raise a muss.
I took my Lize to the Bowery last night,
And a mighty swell we cut,
Some loafer in the pit sung out,
"Say, Sykesy, take de butt!"
I turned right round to see who he was,
But I could'nt tell who was who,
But Lize said 'twas Butcher Bill,
And I lam'd that old foo-foo.
