This is from the 1893

YALE GLEES. A COLLEC-
TION OF THE SONGS
Recently prepared for and used
by the YALE UNIVERSITY GLEE
CLUB.


Compiled and Edited by THOMAS G.
SHEPARD, Musical Director of the
Club since '73.

Published by THOMAS G. SHEPARD, New Haven, Conn., 1893.

pp. 24-25

  1. I'm getting out a little book
    Of useful information,
    I hope when I've explain'd its aim,
    'Twill meet your approbation;
    For answers to a thousand things,
    You find you vainly look,
    In dictionary, or library,
    But the answer's in my book.

    The answer's in my book,
    You've only got to look,
    It's coming out in nineteen ten,
    The answer's in my book.

  2. Sometimes a man will love two maids
    And this sis sad they say.
    For one he thinks he worships while
    The other is away;
    He loses weight, his face is thin,
    Despair is in his look,
    Until he finds which one to choose
    By glancing in my book.
    CHO. The answer's, etc.

  3. We soon won't need a President
    Nor Cabinet, nor Senate,
    Republicans and Democrats
    Alike will not be in it;
    The government will perfect be
    Whichever way you look,
    And everyone will do just right
    Because he reads my book.
    CHO. The answer's, etc.

  4. In short, 'twill be a wondrous work
    To make the world go fairly,
    And everyone shall honest be
    And treat his neighbor squarely;
    We all will live in quiet ease,
    For joy no further look,
    But live content with what we find
    Within my little book.
    CHO. The answer's, etc.

I'll make one this weekend for each of the songs I just posted lyrics for (the others being Down by the Riverside (not the spiritual) and The Man Who Has Plenty of Good Peanuts, for which I posted a LONG set of lyrics, but (un?)fortunately have only the music for the first, normal-length stanza). If I have time I may also post "Meerschaum Pipe" (incipit: "Oh, who will smoke my meerschaum pipe?").

You can see the song, including musical notation for voice and piano, at Google Books here: Yale Glees: A Collection of Songs Recently Prepared for and Used by the Yale University Glee Club by Thomas Griffin Shepard (New Haven: Thomas G. Shepard, 1893), page 24.

Yep, that's the one. Now why I didn't find that when I searched I don't know.
