When Pa Gets Sick

Boston Courier

When pa gets sick he always knowsHe's gonter die and Tommy goesFor Dr. Quack, and 'fore he 'rivesI'm hurried off for Dr. Ives,And ma and Bess and auntie, too,For liniments and gruels go,And plasters and the warming brickAnd everything, when pa gets sick.

Not one of us is 'lowed to play,The baby's sent across the way,The 'pothecary's boy's aboutThe hull time runnin' in and out.The house so with his groans is filledFolks stop to ask who's gettin' killed,And misery is piled on thickFor every one, when pa gets sick.
