Title Olie Olsen
Description OLIE OI£EM It's Olie they all call me Olie And I just came from Norway, I arrived in New York and I finds me no work, So I thinks I'll go west right away. I buys me a ticket Saint Paulie, And I gets on a very fine car. The conductor come3 round and said Olie, You roust get on the immigrant car. I gets off the train at Saint Paulie And I had but one fifty cents, I tuys me a quart alcoholic And on a big jagger I gets. When a man in blue coat and brass buttons Said Olie come go long with me, Veil he kicked and he pushed and he cuffed me And he locked me up with a big key. Next morning they took me to the court house And they stood me before Judge Green, Those feller3 all whispered together And I was made acquainted with him. This is Olie the hobo from Norway They will feed you on salt fish they say. Well they gave me ten days on the rock pile And I thinks I'll remember that day. Chorus Then it's Olie they all call me Olie And I don't see how they find out ray name, For I never tell any of those fellers But it's Olie just the same. Submitted by Margaret Hiley -92-
