While under the law I'm guilty judge, the charge I don't deny,' I fear you would have none the same to him had you been I. I 'broke the rib he says I broke and spattered up his clothes; I blacked the eyes you see is black, 'twas I who broke his nose. That cauliflower ear of his I planted with my right; With seven teeth that I kicked out he never more will bite. That scalp wound indicates the spot a "Billy" that I had Came down upon his. pate, but judge, that fellow made me mad. Some terrible names he called me, judge; I swallowed every-one Until he called one that made me do as I have done. I try to live a peaceful life, I am no hand to fight. But when this name fell on niy ears he had me going right. The worst name he called me, judge, the moro I says, says I, He's in a temper now, but he'll be cooler bye and bye. Just then ho used the epithet, the word as I have said, . Which led to the conclusion I would have to punch his head. A look on the books will show you, judge, this is my first arrest; In forty years to keep the peace I've done my level best. But in the list of names that's called, there, judgo you know, is one, That means a fight when it's applied to any loyal son. Do with mo what you care to do; I haven't one regret; In case they hadn't stopped us, I'd been busy with him yet.
