You can always find a weak place and

Now, who is there amongst us, who'll re

Of a shirt-waist neat and dainty, and

That International Rag.
Miss Blumborg kept a boarding house.
And at Miss Blumberg's boarding house,
She picked the boarders out from
In the world.
And every morn they'd fight and growl,
The neighbors used to hear them howl,
The reason was because she
Only had one towel.
England got it first you see,
Then came France and Germany;

How do You Know.
When the "chap" is in the room,
He and she will sit like this; '
And when she kindly loaves the roo.m

The guy that came from .Sunny Spain,
He would complain
Every time ho saw the gang go
In and out that bath room door,
'Cause he was number twenty-four,
He said, "It makes me sore
When I see, twenty-three '
Standing in line ahead of me";
One big Italian singer,
Would only wipe one nger,t
So he got sore and he tore
Up that International Rag. '
