Representative Text

1 "I'll never use tobacco, no!
It is a nasty weed!
I'll never put it in my mouth,"
Said little Robert Reid."

"O, no! I'll never smoke nor chew,
'Tis very wrong indeed;
It hurts the health, it makes bad breath,
Said little Robert Reid."

2 "Why, there was idle Jerry James,
As dirty as a pig;
Who smoked when only ten years old,
And thought it made him big. [Refrain]

3 "He'd puff along the open street,
As if he had no shame;
He'd sit beside the tavern door,
And there he'd do the same. [Refrain]

4 "He spent his time, and money too,
And made his mother sad;
She fear'd a worthless man would come
From such a worthless lad. [Refrain]
