TUNE -- Camptown Races.
The White House Race.

THERE'S an old gray horse whose name is Buck;
Du da, du da,
His dam was Folly, and his sire Bad Luck,
Du da, du da day.
CHORUS. -- We're bound to work all night,
We're bound to work all day;
I'll bet my money on the mustang colt,
Will anybody bet on the gray?

The mustang colt is strong and young,
Du da, du da,
His wind is sound and his knees not sprung,
Du da, du da day.
CHORUS. -- We're bound to, &c.

The old gray horse is a well-known hack,
Du da, du da,
He's long been fed at the public rack,
Du da, du da day.
CHORUS. -- We're bound to, &c.

The mustang is a full-blood colt,
Du da, du da,
He cannot shy, and he will not bolt,
Du da, du da day.
CHORUS. -- We're bound to, &c.

The old gray horse, when he tries to trot,
Du da, du da,
Goes round and round in the same old spot,
Du da, du da day.
CHORUS. -- We're bound to, &c.

The mustang goes at a killing pace,
Du da, du da,
He's bound to win the four mile race,
Du da, du da day.

CHORUS. -- We're bound to, &c.

Then do your best with the old gray hack,
Du da, du da,
The mustang colt will clear the track,
Du da, du da day.

CHORUS. -- We're bound to work all night
We're bound to work all day;
I'll bet my money on the mustang colt,
You'd better not bet on the gray.
