A LITTLE BIT OFF THE TOP Harry Bedford Brown's a very old friend of mine Once I went to his house to dine; Some of the aristocracy were there. Ev'ryone of 'em thought me "great" And said, when they saw me lick my plate That I must be an American millionaire. The waiter came into the room with a beautiful lump of pork And though I'd "wolfed" enough to feed a town, I thought I'd like a sample of the crackling and the gravy, So I loosened out my vest and said to Brown: Carve a little bit off the top for me! for me! Just a little bit off the top for me! for me! Saw me off a yard or two, I'll tell you when to stop; All I want is a little bit off the top! Once I made up my mind to roam And spend a week by the briny foam; I'd never been far away from home before. Ev'ryone of the family Were sorry indeed to part with me; They all love Willie, especially ma-in-law. They all came up and asked me for a lock of my golden hair, I clipped 'em from the back and from the side; At last I asked the missus which particular bit she fancied, And she rubbed her nose and lovingly replied: Tear a little bit off the top for me! for me! Just a little bit off the top for me! for me! I'll fix it on the copperstick and use it for a mop; All I want is a little bit off the top!
