Tell 'em so!

When there's anything to do
Let the fellows count on you;
You'll feel bully when it's through.
Don't you know?
If you want to make a hit.
Get a name!
If the othor fellow's it.
Who's to blame?
Spend your money in the town
Where you pull the sheckles down;
Give the mail concerns a frown
That's the game.
When a stranger from afar
Tell him who and what we are
Make it strong.
Needn't flatter, never bluff;
Tell the truth, that's enough;
Join the boosters they're the stuff,
If you'er used to giving knocks,
Change your style!
Throw bouquets imtead of rocks
For a while.
Let the other fellow roast;
Shun him as you would a ghost;
Meet his hammer with s boost
And a smile.
