I remember you,                       I don1't Care, I don't enre,
Honest, deed I do.                    They can't well upbraid me
For the very thing that made me,
You used to be in vaudeville,         For it's rare, when niy share,
And have a good place on the bill,    Of applause is not the equal
I roineaber you,                     Of the early acts and sequel.
And Mister Norworth, too,             I don't care, I don't care,
You now inust use your splendid art,  They believe my song is on the level,
For something lilke a charaeter part,  TPlait I commune with the Devil,  .
Put they11 remember you.              But rally, I don't care.
