Subject: Lyr Add: OH, I AM A TEMPERANCE MAN

Chico's link leads to a page from a book, The Temperance Songster by Nathaniel Saunders (Providence, RI: Handy & Higgins, 1867), page 45:


99 Tune—Miss Bundy's Wedding.

[1] Oh, I am a Temperance man,
    And my heart is filled with glee,
For I've signed the temperance pledge,
    And from alcohol I'm free:
I'll never touch or taste
    The poisoned cup again;
From all that can intoxicate
    Forever I'll abstain;
            For I am a temperance man, &c.

[2] Since I put my name to the pledge,
    The pimples have left my nose,
And, instead of having rags to my back,
    I now have plenty of clothes:
I once had but one meal a day,
    And sometimes I got none;
But now, although I always eat three,
    Yet in debt I never run;
            For I am a temperance man, &c.

[3] When I drank rum, the pretty girls
    With me could not agree;
But now I stick to the temp'rance pledge,
    And they all stick to me:
Once people all looked black at me,
    And called me drunken Jake;
But now they touch their hats, and say,
    Your servant, Mr. Blake;
            For I am a temperance man, &c.

[4] Then haste ye, all, and quickly sign
    Our pledge of liberty,
And break the chains of alcohol,
    And be forever free:
Then gather round your social hearths,
    And hymns of gladness sing,
For alcohol is at last dethroned,
    And is no longer king.
            For we are temperance men, &c.

----
Apart from this song, I can't find any place where "Miss Bundy's Wedding" is mentioned.
