[1st Voice]
A little man well skilled,
A little heart well filled,
A little soul well drilled, give me, give me.
A short man, A short man,
A short man, A short man, give me, give me.
A short man, A short man,
A short man, A short man give me, give me.

[Spoken]
I shall go for Douglas, the Giant of the West, the sovereign of Squatters, with his coat tail near the ground.
We'll take your tall man skilled,
Your biggest heart well filled,
For good old Abe's the man for me, for me.

[2nd Voice]
A larger man well skilled,
A larger heart well filled,
A bigger soul well drilled, give me, give me.
A tall man, A tall man,
A tall man, A tall man, give me, give me.
A tall man, A tall man,
A tall man, A tall man give me, give me.

[Spoken]
I shall go for Bell - ringing to the music of the union, besides honor will follow our flag where [ever it] Everett goes.
We'll take your tall man skilled,
Your biggest heart well filled,
For good old Abe's the man for me, for me.

[3rd Voice] I like your man well skilled,
And I like your heart well filled,
But no small man at all give me, give me.
No little man give me, give me,
No little man give me, give me.
No little man, No little man give me, give me,
No little man give me, give me.

[Spoken]
And I shall go for Abraham Lincoln, the Farm - hand, the Flat - boat - man, the Rail - splitter, the Surveyor, the Legislator, the
Soldier, the Member of Congress, the prospective President of the United States. Then go with me for the tall man of the West,
&c., &c.
I like the man well skilled, and I like the heart well filled,
So good old Abe's the man for me, for me.
