1. SING a song of Charleston!
Bottle full of Rye!
All the Douglas delegates
Knocked into pi!
For when the vote was opened
The South began to sing,
"Your little Squatter Sovereign
Shan't be our King!"

Hi diddle, diddle,! the Dred Scot riddle!
The delegates scatter like loons!
The little Dug swears to see the sport,
And the Southerners count their spoons.

2. There was a little Senator,
Who wasn't very wise,
He jumped into Convention,
And scratched out both his eyes.
And when he found his eyes were out,
With all his might and main,
He bolted off to Baltimore
To scratch them in again.
Chorus. -- Hi diddle, diddle! &c.
