A Political Catch.


TUNE — "The Little Tailor Boy."

In Andrew Jackson's reign,
The mighty Veto King,
There were three varmints in this land,
And of these three we sing.


The one was the Pole Cat — Kendall,
The other was the Beagle — Duff Green;
The third, he was the Little Red Fox,
From the Empire State, I ween.

The Skunk, he defiled his friend,
The Beagle he gave the alarm,
The Little Red Fox stole the President's robe,
To keep these three rogues warm.

We smothered the Pole Cat in Clay,
The Beagle stole off to Calhoun,
While the little Red Fox was caught by the tail,
And worried to death by the Coon!
