O Precinct Captain, my Precinct Captain! Election Day is done,
The neighborhood is quiet now, the job we sought is won,
The voters near, their voices clear, our friends are now departing;
With rolling eyes and shaking heads, the signs all disappearing;

But O mouth! mouth! mouth!
O the crackling voice can call,
Where on the couch the Precinct Captain lies,
Enjoying an afternoon nap.
