Song—Act I., Scene 1.
Columbus, D.A.D.M.S. and Q.M.S.
I am Christopher Columbus.
I am Christopher Columbus,
At my dial all the dumb cuss,
And old ladies raise their hands in frenzied horror.
I am great and I am mighty
With the girls a trifle flighty,
But they all think me IT. They do; by gorra!!
I'm his D.A.D.M. Esses.
My pills and potions man oppresses—
Excuse the grammar—I'm a dasher full of promise.
And if men are ever seedy,
Result of beer or being greedy,
My number nine restores 'em—Hell and Thomas
I am Stuff the Quartermaster,
Of the togs, a sort of pastor.
If the camp you enter clean or muddy—Well,
I just fits you with a tunic,
Boots, shirts and sockses, new knit,
Then tells you to make tracks for——!
