ROBBIE'S FOURTH OF JULY.
Got a busted finger,
Sort of shifcd my hair
Burnt the skin all off my chin
But- Lordyl I don't care;
Made the biggest lot o' noise
Ever a feller knew.
Don't mind if I am bunged up.
What's a boy to do?
Had my nose blowed sideways
Had three teeth knocked out;
Kind of fear my left-hand ear
Is sort of up the spoutt
Never care for things like that;
What's an ear or two?
When July the Fourth is here
What's a boy to do?
Thumbs all twisted out o' shape,
Cannon shot too quick.
Burnt my pants -It made me dance,
I te'l you, pretty slick:
Crackers in my pocket caught,
Severa' sissers too.
Burnt like mighty; but, I say,
What's a boy to do?
Splinters all through both my hands
Rocket-stick, you know;
When it hissed and burned and sissed,
Forgot to let it go.
Hurt? Well, rather! Course it does,
S'pose it happened you?
Sorry? Not a bit of itl
VN hat's a boy to do? Bazar.
