MISTER MAN
 
Rose Sylvester
 

Oh! when I hear a man declare,
That woman's false although she's fair,
I always sing out, 'Hold on, there!'
It's not so, Mister Man.
You wicked man, the fault's your own,
You only reap what you have sown,
Why don't you leave the girls alone?
You Naughty Mister Man.

Chorus: Mister Man! Mister Man! You're a very gay deceiver,
You're a very gay deceiver, Mister Man!
For you tell a girl you love her,
And you go away and leave her,
You're a very gay deceiver, Mister Man!

You tell a girl you love her so,
You'll go through fire and frost and snow,
But then you know, you never go,
You artful, Mister Man.
But what is more, a burning shame,
You go and meet another flame,
And tell the poor girl just the same,
You wicked Mister Man.

Chorus:

You tell her that you'll be so brave,
You madly rave you'll be her slave,
But oh! so differently behave,
You naughty Mister Man.
You swear you'll love her when she's old,
But stop out late and fume and scold,
And swear because your supper's cold,
You wicked Mister Man.

Chorus:

You tell for her sake you'd die,
But after you have said, 'Good-bye.'
You laugh and wink the other eye,
You winking Mister Man.
You call her sweet as almond rock,
Call her the lamb of all the flock,
But, married, she's the old Dutch Clock,
You wicked Mister Man.

Chorus:
