“And when some jubilant son-of-a-gun
Yelled, ‘What’s the matter with Harrison?’
A voice replied, far up the height,
‘He’s all right.'”

- Cleveland took his hook and line and started off a-fishing.
- Come arouse ye, arouse ye, my brave Buckeye boys!
- Come listen to me, and I’ll sing you a song,
- Come listen, all ye soldiers who wore the royal blue,
- Come, patriots, come, and let’s clear out the kitchen,
- Cutting the tax from the sheep’s white wool,
- Dar’s a-gwine to be a movin’ call
- Democrats may flourish their bandannas —
- For America and freedom we take the field again
- Glorious is our candidate!
- Grover Cleveland is a collar of extraordinary size,
- He comes from the West in the strength of his name,
- Hoist the good old flag, my boys, we always loved so well,

- Not a sigh was heard, not a farewell groan,
- O Democrats, hear the trumpet blow,
- O, glorious standard of the free,
- Oh, Grover C, my Jo Grove! I wonder what you mean
- Oh, what has caused this great commotion,
- Oh, where, tell me where, was your Buckeye Cabin made?
- Oh, who is Grover Cleveland’s Vice,
- Should brave old soldiers be forgot?
- Should good old cider be despised
- The spoilsmen are fretful and gloomy as night,
- The voice of the nation has spoken,
- We are ready for the battle of November
- We long to see the season come
- When British foemen swarmed around
- When Free Trade, from her topmost crag,
- When my old hat was new (’twas back in sixty-one),
- Ye jolly young lads of the nation
