Cock-a-doodle-doo: A Political Commercial \u26 Matrimonial Song and Chorus

By Thomas William Robertson and Ferdinand Wallerstein

Abstract

Political. When Ministers in dread and doubt, Lest they should be from place kick\u27d out, Get up, \u27gainst time an sense to spout A long dull ev\u27ning through What mean they then by Party Clique, Mob Orators and factions weak? \u27Tis only would they truth but speak, But Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo! Commercial. When Companies, whose stock of cash Directors spend, to cut a dash, Are forc\u27d to avertise and smash, And Bankruptcy go through; When tradesfolk live in regal state, The goods they sell, adulterate, And puff in print why that\u27s their prate, But Cock-a-doodle-doo? Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo! Matrimonial. When young folks spoon, squeeze hands and sigh, As for establishments they try, The while they expectations eye, And Tennyson quote through, When Pa\u27s and Ma\u27s for marriage mart Prepare their girls with ev\u27ry art, And try to cry as they depart, That\u27s Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo
