Buck's Private Confession Publicly Revealed
Air: Lucy Long
"Oh, if I thought that I had got
One drop of a Democrat's blood,
My jugular vein it'd rip in twain,
And spill the filthy flood."
(Chorus of Loafers)"Don't let that annoy you!
We say, old buffer, stop !
If they boiled you down in a
chandler's vat they couldn't raise a drop.
"I think those vile mechanics
Get ten times too much pay ;
With a Federal screw I'd put them through
At just "ten cents a day!"
( Chorus as before )"But don't let that alarm you,
We say, old squaretoes, stop!
By the lord! if you touch the
workman's wage, the twig you'll have to hop.
"I don't believe in marriage
A curse on wives and weans.
I love myself too much to share
With them my pork and beans!"
( Chorus hilariously)"But don't let that alarm you,
A "cuckold" he was born,
And since he left his Federal wife
Oh hasn't she given hima horn
"No more I'm James Buchanan,
I sold myself down South;
Henceforth I'll do what my masters please,
And speak what they put in my mouth"
(Chorus solemnly) "But don't let that alarm you,
Forgive his slavish tone;
Can you ask a man to stand up straight
Who was born without a back-bone?
