CAT MORGAN INTRODUCES HIMSELF

I once was a Pirate what sailed the'igt seas
     But now I've retired as a com-mission-aire:
And that's how you find me a-takin' my ease
     And keepin' the door ina Bloomsburry Square.

I'm partial to partidges, likewise to grouse,
     And I favour thet Devonchire cream in a bowl;
But I'm allus content with a drink on the 'ouse
     And a bit o'cold fish when I done me patrol.

I ain't got much polish, me manners is gruff,
     But I've got a bood coat, and I keep meself smart;
And everyone says, and I guess that's enought:
     'You can't but like Morgan, 'e's got a kind ' art.'

I got knocked about on the Barbary Coast,
     And me voice it ain't no sich melliferous horgan;
But yet I can state, and I'm not one to boast;
     That some of the gals is dead keen on old Morgan

So if you 'ave business with Faber- or Faber-
     I'll give you this tip, and it's worth a lot more:
You'll save yourself time, and you'll spare youself labour
     If just make friends with the Cat at the door.
               Morgan
