A Good Fellow
Dy Malt Mason, x
I’m feeling punk like, a pile of junk,
and 1 don’t know what to do; I've
spent my cash and acted rash and
now I’m feeling blue. My money
came, my friends the same, to help
me spend my dough; I was never
' wrong, life was like a song while
I*had the "chink” to blow. I awoke
one morn, my money was gone and
I hocked my watch and chain> I pock
eted my lends and looked for my
. friends but I hunted them ail in vain.
Now I am broke, people call me a
joke and they laugh as they hear me
bellow. I have »sown my wild oats
and they call me a dope for trying to
be a good fellow.
