Far, far,
The lineally-measured distance from East Fourteenth Street, New York, to
Tipperary,
Distant, distant the place and dreary-spent, drawn-out, the hours in
journeying thither
To, of my entire man-found acquaintance, the most desirable, the most
yearning-to-be-possessed, of women.
Piccadilly and Leicester Square, good-bye!
Far, far is it to Tipperary
But my sky-soaring soul, my myriad-hearted heart is there.
