JUST TO SHOW THERE'S NO ILL FEELING
 

I'm obliging, you will say,
When my habits I've made known;
Your attention then I pray,
And my kindness will be shown.
In a manner you will say,
Shows straight-forward, honest dealing;
I meet all in a friendly way,
Just to show there's no ill feeling,

Chorus: So I jog on day by day,
Nothing fearing, naught concealing;
Meet all in a friendly way,
Just to show there's no ill -feeling.

Sometimes I go out to sup,
P'rhaps to luncheon, or to dine;
I enjoy a brimming cup,
Of Ale or Porter, Stout or Wine,
Remember I'm not such an ass,
To go home muzzy, drunk or reeling,
With a friend I take a glass,
Just to show there's no ill-feeling.

Chorus:

I possess a charming wife,
Chance had thrown her in my way;
Don't we lead a happy life,
I shall not forget the day.
When I dropp'd upon my knee,
And to her my love revealing;
Said, sweet maiden, marry me,

Chorus:

She smiled and showed her teeth like pearls,
Said she loved and would be mine;
I married then the best of girls,
Our family now numbers nine,
At eight o'clock the row begins
Boys and girls around us squealing,
Yesterday she gave me twins,
Just to show there's no ill-feeling.

Chorus:

If you think the song you've heard,
Is not worthy of your praise;
On the safe side I have erred,
I only tried a laugh to raise,
As I've worked long in your cause,
To your kindness I'm appealing;
Favour me with your applause,
Just to show there's no ill-feeling.

Chorus:
