| A fool there was and he made his prayer|
(Even as you and I)
To a rag and a bone and a hank of hair
(We called her the woman who did not care)
But the fool he called her his lady fair.
| The Vampire.|
| The tumult and the shouting dies,|
The Captains and the Kings depart,
Still stands thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
| Lest we forgetlest we forget!|
| Oh the road to Mandalay|
Where the flyin-fishes play
An the dawn comes up like thunder outer
China crost the Bay!
| Ship me somewhere east of Suez, where the best is like the worst,|
Where there arnt no Ten Commandments an a man can raise a thirst.
| Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,|
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at Gods great Judgment Seat.
| Ballad of East and West.|
| Its Tommy this an Tommy that an Chuck im out, the brute,|
But its Savior of is country, when the guns begin to shoot.
| Single men in barricks dont grow into plaster saints.|
| Its clever, but is it art?|
| The Conundrum of the Workshops.|
| Theyve taken of his buttons off an cut his stripes away|
An theyre hangin Danny Deever in the morning.
