About this Item

Mrs. Johnson.

Mrs. Johnson.

Oh! I have got a charming bride,
And with my life am satisfied,
She's worthy all the world beside,
Her name is Mrs. Johnson.

The life I lead is rather gay,
I'm bout the town near all the day,
And generally at ten-pins play,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

At concerts now quite strong I come,
The grand piano I can strum,
But I usually plays the drum,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

At debating clubs I do my share,
My name is famous every where,
I very often takes the chair,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

At acting I can do the trick,
Othello, Hamlet, or King Dick;
I plays them all just like a brick,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

At sea I'll manage any craft,
And keep things ship-shape fore-and-aft;
I'm a first rate bhoy to steer a raft,
And so is Mrs. Johnson.

In legal matters I'm no fudge,
And can give any here a nudge;
I expect soon to be made a judge,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

To every fire of course I goes,
And all the companies I knows;
I runs with Engines and with Hose,
And so does Mrs. Johnson.

But lor' you should just see me box,
One blow of mine would fell an ox:
Oh I fetches 'em some precious knocks,
Ah! And so does Mrs. Johnson.

But we've tasted deep of wedlocks joys;
And I never mind the darling's noise;
I'm pap to seventeen lovely boys,
And so is Mrs. Johnson.

They say I'm handsome, and in sooth,
I really think they tell the truth,
I'm just the image of Kossuth,
And so is Mrs. Johnson.

Well, I can't sing any more to-day,
For fear I should drive you away,
Concerning how I go astray,
With lovely Mrs. Johnson.
