I'M THE GUY THAT PAID THE RENT FOR MRS. RIP VAN WINKLE (Geo. Fairman, 1914) To look at me no doubt you think I'm happy I'm really anything but that. I know you wonder why I wear this suit of clothes and my old last summer's hat. There was a time when I had a lot of money But that was many years ago. I met a Missus Rip Van Winkle. That's what became of all my dough Some people say I look just like the ice man that brought the ice to Winkle's flat. And that the milkman was a friend of Missus Rip's and such foolish things as that. I'm very sorry that I ever met her And I suppose she thinks the same But I must surely give her credit, The way she played her little game. I'm the guy that paid the rent for Missus Rip Van Winkle when Rip Van Winkle went away. He left her all alone, All alone, Like the villain in the play. I spent my money Just like a dead game sport. But I figure I must of been a Jay for I'm the guy that paid the rent for Missus Rip Van Winkle when Rip Van Winkle went away.
