Grover C. Grover C.

Air: Nelly Bly

Music by Stephen C. Foster

Grover C, Grover C, I pity you, I do,
But next November sure, my boy, will prove too much for you,
You put your foot in it, you did, when you that message wrote,
It's protection, not free trade, we want, of that please make a note.

Chorus:
O Cleve, O Cleve, what made you do so,
Up salt river soon, my boy, you will" go. (Repeat.)


Grover C, Grover C, the battle will be won,
And a g¬Ľod high tariff man be placed to rule in Washington,
Great Harrison our standard bears, a Republican and true,
We know him well and against free trade, we will push him through.
Chorus:
O Cleve, O Cleve, what made you do so,
Up salt river soon, my boy, you will" go. (Repeat.)


Grover C, Grover C, your doctrine of reform
Preached red-hot four years ago, is not now even warm;
Out ia the cold you will be left, your chance is growing slim,
For Harrison's the people's choice, their votes will go for him.
Chorus:
O Cleve, O Cleve, what made you do so,
Up salt river soon, my boy, you will" go. (Repeat.)


Democrats, Democrats, you're blind if you can't see
That free trade's not protection here for sons of Liberty!
A tariff for the working man must be a tariff high,
And in the coming contest now, will be our battle cry.

Chorus:
O Cleve, O Cleve, what made you do so,
Up salt river soon, my boy, you will" go. (Repeat.)
