Poor Mister Chisholm [From Second Chorus] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Poor Mr. Chisholm
Played on the mandolin
But he couldn't win
Cause he tried to swing
And he broke a string every time
Verse 2
Poor Mr. Chisholm
Just couldn't dig the jive
When he did arrive at the proper note
He arrived by boat every time
Verse 3
He tried to jazz up his mandolin
But never could quite control it
He always brought Bach and Handel in
When it took a lick, he always broke a pick
Verse 4
Poor Mr. Chisholm
You're quite a gay old blade
With your serenade, but you're corny, Jack
Better truck on back to Dubuque
Get a Uke-
You disgrace your kin
On the mandolin every time
