Rex - Two Men (J.L. and R. B.) -


Riley Dooleyvitch - Touch - The Button Nell -

- Among the merry mob of men was one who did not dance, but watched the "light fantastic" with a sour and sullen glance.  They saw his white teeth grit and gleam, they saw his thick lips twitch;  they knew him for the giant Slav, one Riley Dooleyvitch.

"Oh Riley Dooleyvitch, come forth," quoth Touch-the-Button Nell, "and dance a step or two with me -- the music's simply swell."  He crushed her in his mighty arms, a meek, beguiling witch:  "With you, Oh Nell, I'd dance to Hell," said Riley Dooleyvitch.

He waltzed her up, he waltzed her down, he waltzed her round the hall;  His heart was putty in her hands, his very soul was thrall.  As Antony of old succumbed to Cleopatra's spell,  so Riley Dooleyvitch bowed down to Touch-the-Button Neil.

"You've brought us canned beef, an' it's now my belief, that this here's a case of 'canned man.'"


Sam McGee - The Cremation of Sam McGee -

 - was from Tennessee, where the cotton blooms and blows.
Why he left his home in the South to roam 'round the Pole, God only knows.


Saint Peter - A Sourdough Story -


Salvation Bill - The Ballad of Salvation Bill -

- I teach the Living Law, and bally-hoo the Bible with the best; and if a guy won't listen -- why, I sock him on the jaw and preach the Gospel sitting on his chest.
