CARD OF APPRECIATION
' " '
ITS A GAY OLD WUKUJ
It's a pay old world when yu're
And a glad old world when you're
But whether you play
0r go toiling away
It's a sad old world when you're
It's a grand oW world if you're
And a mean old world if you're
jfB a world full of hate
For the foolish who prate
Of the uselessness of it all.
Ifj, a beautiful world to see
Or it's dismal in every zone.
The thing it must bt
In its gloom or in its glee
Depends on yourself alone.
