The Fellow That Looks Like Me
In sad despair I wander, my heart is filled with woe, when on my grief I
ponder what to do I do not know. For cruel fate has on me frowned & the
trouble seems to be, there's another feller in this town that's just the image of me!
Oh, wouldn't I like to catch him, whoever he may be? Wouldn't I bust his
pumpkin head, That fellow that looks like me?
