I DO IT FOR HIM, NOW
 
Daisy May
 

My husband was a widower
When I fell in his way;
His late wife had departed
Just on twelve month and a day.
She used to serve him out so bad,
He grew weary of his life;
She pulled his whiskers, punched his nose,
But now I am his wife,

Chorus: I do it for him! I do it for him!
Ever since I took the marriage vow,
When I think he needs a clout,
Or his features knocked about,
I do it for him now!

Now what. I do for my old man
Is always for his good;
I've made him turn teetotaler,
As all good husbands should.
Of beer alone he used to drink
A barrel every day.
Besides his whisky, rum, and gin;
But now, I'm pleased to say,

Chorus: I do it for him! I do it for him!
Ever since I took the marriage vow,
Not a penny of his tin
Does he spend in beer and gin-
l do it for him now!

When I first met my husband,
He was going wrong, I fear:
The company he got into
At times was very queer;
He'd find his pockets empty
When he woke up in the morn,
And more than once he had to take
His breeches off to pawn,

Chorus: But I do it for him! I do it for him!
Ever since I took the marriage vow
He don't. have to run about,
Puttin trousers 'up the spout'
l do it for him now!

One of the greatest troubles to
A workin' man, I find,
In rising in the morning,
So as not to be behind.
The first week we were married
Mine was always late, somehow,
He used to have a p'liceman then
To call him up, but now,

Chorus: I do it for him! I do it for him I
Ever since I took the marriage vow;
And he’s quickly up and dressed
When he gets this on his chest (boot-jack produced)
I do it for him now!
