Heres to the man who kisses his wife

And kisses his wife alone

There's many a man kisses other mens wives

When he should be kissing his own

With best wishes for a happy future

12th Dec. 1917                        with every good wish

                                                     yours sincerely

                                                      A. Howard

                                                  8/10  ... Gordon Heurs

                 Lament   

The world is full of most beautiful things

And the beautifullest of the beautiful things

Are the beautiful girls in their beautiful things

What a beautiful thing to think,

                             Isn't it?

Yes a ripping fine thing to think;

Oh, a topping fine thing to think

          ____________________

I see them from out of a tramway car;

I see them atop of a bug, afar;

I see them! I see them!! Whereever they are

Its enough to drive one to drink

                           Isn't it?

But one can't get drivven to drink

With no taxis and little to drink

         ___________________

I often think it a sad sad thought

What can be done for it? something ought

You can't meet 'em all for life's to short

It's a sad, sad thought to think     Isn't it?

Yes, a rotten dashed thing to think

  ...    a fed-up old thing to think!
