The Jockey Hat and Feather


Published by Chas Magnus, 12 Frankfort St. N.Y.

The Jockey hat and Feather.

As I was walking out, one day,
Thinking of the weather,
I saw a pair of roguish eyes
‘Neath a hat and feather;
She looked at me, I looked at her,
It made my heart pit-pat.
Then turning round, she said to me:
How do you like my hat?

She wore a handsome broad-cloth basque,
Cut the latest fashion,
And flounces all around her dress,
Made her look quite dashing;
Her high-heeled boots, as she walk’d on
The pavement, went pit-pat,
I will never forget the smile I saw,
Beneath the Jockey hat.

She kissed her hand, said***
Then I was a goner;
Before I had time to say “good-bye,”
She was round the corner.
I tried that night, but could not sleep,
So up in bed I sat,
And right before my face I thought,
I saw that Jockey hat.
