Any Other Man

Any Other Man. Or JOHN BULL. — By
Our Country is in trouble: which no one can deny;
And with Southern Traitors: Disunion! is the cry;
But North, East and West are doing all that they can,
And swear to crush Rebellion or: Any other man.
The Union is safe enough, in spite of civil strife;
Each honest man will stand by it, defend it with his life;
Foreign mediation is offensive to our plan:
So, France and England stand aside, or: Any other man.
’Tis said that Thomas Pepper was kicked out of—well,
For awful lies and whoppers that he used to tell;
But let him try Bull Russell, and beat him if he can;
For, Russell beats the Devil himself, or: Any other man.
There’s Old Slidell and Mason, by traitor Davis sent
To Europe as Commissioners.. they sailed aboard the Trent;
But Wilkes he overhauled them, and, to their sore regret,
Invited them to board, a while, at Hotel-Lafayette.
Johnny Bull wants Cotton to feed his idle mills;
In consequence, he threatens us with all sorts of ills;
Just let him try and live without our grain, if he can:
For, Corn is King o’er Cotton now, or: Any other man.
Our wheat, corn and flour with Johnny we have shared;
But if he wants to quarrel now, ho’ll find us well prepared;
Don’t jump into the fire, Bull, but keep within the pan;
For, Uncle Sam’s a match for you, or: Any other man.
Now, Johnny Bull’s complaining of Uncle Sam’s Stone-Fleet,
And says: to make the best of it, ‘tis but a shabby feat.
If he don’t like the thing, just let him raise it, if he can;
He’ll find it can’t be done by him, or: Any other man.
Now, all who have more rhino than what they daily spend,
To the Union Volunteer Saloon your spare cash you should send.
Our Soldiers brave are treated there upon the Gratis plan;
The money’s spent on Soldiers, but on NARY CONCIL MAN.
