Parody on the Cottage by the Sea.

“Childhood’s days have passed before me,”
Dear Tom, “Just twenty years ago;”
“Tis Columbia’s greatest glory”
“Paddy’s Museum” and “Baby-Show.”
“When this cruel war is over,”
“Sally is the gal for me;”
“Thou hast learned to love another,”
“In the cottage by the sea,”
“Let me kiss him for his mother,”
“In the cottage by the sea,”

“We are coming, Sister Mary.”
In “The Irish jaunting-car.”
“Hold your horses,” “Paddy Carey,”
“There is whiskey in the jar.”
“Here I am, as you diskiver”—
“Maiden, wilt thou dwell with me,”
“Near the banks of that lone river,”
“In the cottage by the sea?”
“Our starry flag shall wave forever,”
“In the cottage by the sea.”

“Since I’ve been in the army,”
“In the days of old lang syne,”
Near “The pleasant groves of Blarney”
“I’d offer thee this hand of mine.”
“The old gray mare” sleeps “In the valley”—
She was “The belle of Avenue B,”
“No one to love” but “Old Aunt Sally,”
In the cottage by the sea,”
To “Limerick Races” “Freemen rally,”
“In the cottage by the sea.”

“Alice Gray.” “Last Rose of Summer,”
“We’ll meet again” at “Donnybrook Fair,”
“Come into my cabin, old bummer,”
For you’re “The boy with the auburn hair.”
You’re “Played out” “Sweet highland Mary,”
Since “Dorans Ass” went “On a spree;”
With “The men of Tipperary,”
“In the cottage by the sea.”
And sweet “William of the Ferry,”
“In the cottage by the sea.”

“We have lived and loved together”
On “the Yankee man-of war;”
“With a jockey hat and feather,”
“Thou art so near, and yet so far,”
“One good turn deserves another”—
Then O “Woodmann, spare that tree!”
“What is home without a mother,”
“In the cottage by the sea?”
“Bryan O’Lynn,” “Scorn not thy brother,”
“In the cottage by the sea.”
