MORE TO COME
 

Now people keep your seats and believe me when I say
That now upon the stage I've just come out to-day,
If my ways seem queer, you'll pardon me I'm sure,
This verse you may not like, but still there's plenty more

Chorus: There's some more to come,
One or two more to come,
Some more to come,
Yes one or two more to come,
So keep your seats and let me mention that before I've done,
There's some more, some more, some more,
Some more to come.

Once I went for a sail upon the ocean blue,
But I felt very bad, I don't mind telling you,
The steward came and said, below you'd better go,
Do you feel better sir? I meekly answered, "No,"'

Chorus: There's some more to come,
A little bit more to come,
Some more to come,
A jolly lot more to come,
The meals I'd had that blessed day, we parted one by one,
There's some more, some more, some more,
Some more to come.

Down where we keep the coals I had a fright to-day,
The grating on the top was loose and slipped away,
An accident I said will soon take place I fear,
When presently I saw a bit of lace appear.

Chorus: There was more to come,
A little bit more to come,
Some more to come, a jolly lot more to come,
The lady said, "Oh, help me sir, I feel so awfully rum."
There's some more, some more, some more,
Some more to come.

Down at our house today, a very big event,
Occured and strange to say; I know not what it meant,
The nurse came out to me, a baby on each arm,
And told me pleasantly I need have no alarm.

Chorus: For there was more to come,
One or two more to come,
Some more to come,
I felt a trifle glum,
She made me rave when out she came and brought another one,
And said there's more, some more, some more,
Some more to come,

Now here's a disgraceful thing, permit me just to say,
A gentleman we know has not had fair play,
He's had the roughest work, deny it no-one can,
That Buller proved himself a soldier and a man. '

Chorus: Well there's some more to come,
A little bit more to come,
Some more to come,
A jolly lot more to come,
When the truth is out, his slanderers will wish
There's some more, some more, some more,
Some more to come.
