Feeling rather lonesome, one day in gay Paree
I wandered down a boulevard to see what I could see.
I had not wandered far, when what should greet my ears
Bug a band of noisy instruments, and a hundred thousand cheers.
I was a little curious to find out what it was about,
And so I gathered speed, and continued on my route.
I wen: a ways then stopped--there was a parade a coming,
And all along beside it, the joyous crowd was running.
I listened to the music, and heard the tramp of feet,
And as the band came closer I discovered that their leader, straight,
The people cheered and shouted, as he proudly passed
A second Sousa he'd become, a hero in every eye.
Then came the circus coaches, drawn by horses grand,
With animals of all descriptions, some from every land.
As I watched the cages pass filled with monsters grim,
I noticed in a lion's cage, a maiden, dark and slim--
She sat upon a lion's back, and stroaked his tangled mane,
I looked closer--it was Laura, and taming lions was her game.
I rushed to the circus tent as fast as I could go,
I wanted to be the first one there, and sit in the formost row.
But the tent was very crowded, they woulden't let me in,
I told the ticket agent what I thought, and said it with a Vim.
And while I raved and sputtered, I bumped into a clown--
He laughed at me, then calmly asked: "Well, when did you hit
the town?" ,
And as I stood and glared, the crowd came 'round to see the fun,
But with another look I knew that it was Roy Sorenson.
We talked about the school days, and all our classmates too,
And wondered where they were, and wished too that we knew, --
When Roy stopped to think. "Why not try the crystal gazer?"
So off we went, he introduced me to Madam Consume de Razor.
I asked her about my classmates, where they were, or what they did
And then she slowly turned her crystal, and this is what she said--
"I see a pretty maden in Orental garb,
She sits on silken cushins, and is Madam Stephnapoulis Lard.
Her husband is a Turkish count, of undisputed. fame,
And to her former classmates, Geraldine is her name.
And now the scene is changing, another girl I see,
She's dressed in a red bathing suit, for a dip into the sea,
You used to call her Lois, but she's Mrs. Hemphill now,
She's won the swimming title for all the world around.
'Annette Kellerman isn't in it, when Lois is on deck,'
So says her husband Wallace, who is now an architect.
The scene is changing once again, my crystal looks on fire,
I see a red-headed girl, yes, 'tis our Sophia.
A home she's founded for babies far and near,
But only little red-heads can be admitted here.
Bernice has become a milliner, on Broadway has her shop,
Her wonderful creations have started Paris into talk.
Betty now is famous, an opera star is she,
She takes her audiences by storm, in 'Sausages ond Cheese!
