Whist ! The Bogie Man

words by Edward Harrigan (1844-1911) ; music by David Braham (1838-1905)

Oh ! gather round me little ones,
So full of fun and glee;
Your dad is going to play the fool
To please the family.
All jump upon the table,
Upset the dish and pan;
I love to hear your mother say,
Whist! whist! the bogie man.

Oh ! whist! whist! whist!
Here comes the bogie man,
Now go to bed, you baby,
You Tommy, Nell, and Dan,
Oh! whist! whist! whist!
He'll catch ye if he can,
An all the popsey-wopseys-wop
Run from the bogie man.
