I should worry, I should sigh,
I should toss all night in pain,
Just because I cannot buy (
Things some people long to gain;
Clothes of latest English cut,
Fashion's latest freak in shoes,
VSwagger" derbies for my nut,
I should weep and liave the blues f
Vincent Astor's out of town,
Reggie Vnderbilt's at home,
Mrs. Goelet has a gown
Which is quite the rage in Rome,
Harry Thaw is still inside
Becker, too, is out of sight,.
I should worry till I cried; . f
J should lose iiy appetite! - -
Cost of living's due to fall,
Costlier is dry champagne,
Diamond stocks are getting small,.
Turkey starts the war again;
Rich trust magnates go to jail!
They get theirs' and get it good!
I should weep and I should wail,
I should worry yaas I should!
