WINIFRED.
  My heart, my heart goes pit-a pat,...
    O brave and gallant fellow;
  For I have often sat...
    Within your 'bus so yellow.
  I always liked you so,...
    Because the 'bus you well drove
  When shopping I would go
    To Marshall and to Snelgrove,
  When shopping I would go
    To Marshall and to Snelgrove!
  And now you are my king,...
    My captain, chief, commander,
  Your praise I'll ever sing,...
    Oh, Horace Alexander,
Oh, Horace Alexander.

WINIFRED HORACE
How sweetly through
the air, How sweetly through
Dispersing tales of the air,...
slander, Dispersing tales
There sound the praises fair... of slander,...
of Horace Alexander, Dispersing tales of slander,
of Horace Alexander Dispersing tales of slander,
There sound, there sound the praises fair There sound, there sound the praises fair
Of Horace Alexander!... Of Horace Alexander!...

HORACE.
  Although my hopes were nill,...
    And love's young dream was blighted,
  I kept the horses still...
    While you and ma alighted;
  I watch'd you pay the fare,...
    My love I might not show you,
  Nor from the box-seat dare
    A single kiss to blow you.
  Nor from the box-seat dare
    A single kiss to blow you,
A single kiss to blow you.
  O Queen of woman kind...
    In Britain, France or Flanders,
  No heart more true you'll find...
    Than Horace Alexander's,
Than Horace Alexander's.

WINIFRED. HORACE.
How little do
we heed How little do
The world's censorious we heed The
slander, The world's censo-
A happy man indeed... rious slander, How
Is Horace Alexander, little do we heed,...
is Horace Alexander, The world's censorious slander,
A happy, happy man indeed A happy, happy man indeed
Is Horace Alexander! Is Horace Alexander!
