FATHER SAYS I MAY
 
div
 
When I was courting Nellie Clair
I often used to say
'Whatever you think of doing dear
Ask Father if you may'
Whatever she might wish for, I
Of course could ne'er refuse
So the darling did just as she pleased
For this was her excuse.

Chorus: 'Father says I may, Georgie, Father says I may
Of course you can't say no, Georgie, if Father says I may
Father says I may, Georgie, Father says I may
So don't say, 'no' for it's no 'go', since Father says I may.
