For the highest name's sure to pan out,
Chorus:   pan out,
Rufus: My Lord Dolphin, he didn't pan out,
Chorus:   pan out,
Rufus: Japan royalty put him to rout,
    to rout,
Rufus: My lord's a great catch,
My lord's hard to match,
But a title that's higher pans out,
Chorus:   pans out.
   
Rufus: An American always pans out,
Chorus:   pans out,
Rufus: Sends a deadlock with ease up the spout,
Chorus:   the spout,

Rufus: When a run's on a bank, can't pan out,
Chorus:   pan out,
Rufus: The directors all down with the gout,
Chorus:   the gout,
Rufus: Their Delmonico dinners then fall to beginners,
And a new bank is hatch'd to pan out,
Chorus:   pan out.
Rufus: The swell raquet just now that pans out,
Chorus:   pans out,
Rufus: Is the skating rink raquet, sans doubt,
Chorus:   sans doubt,
Rufus: You roll and you glide,
You skim and you slide;
While you work, the rink owner pans out.
Chorus:   pans out.
