NEVER INTRODUCE YOUR DONAH TO A PAL
 
div
 
I've lost my gal through a pal of 'o mine
Always wi' me nar, I'll tell yer why becos
Me and 'im was partners in a donkey cart
That's what made me introdooce him to the tart
One day I sez 'Bill, I want's the cart today
'E sez, 'Me too' in a aggrevating way
As I did not want to go and needle 'im
I takes my gal along o' me to wheedle 'im.

Chorus: Never introduce your Donah to a pal
Cos the odds is 10 to 1 he sneaks yer gal
He'll stand her whelks and porter
And upon the sly he'll court her
Never introduce your donah to a pal
Take my tip
Always keep yer blinkers on yer gal.


Once I spotted Bill and Sal a-makin' eyes
Then he goes and lushes 'er, to my surprise
I sez, 'Lookm 'ere, this is far beyond a joke.'
He sez 'Chuck it, else I'll land yer on the boke'
I spars up, but though yer won't believe the fact
In one short round I gits both my peepers blacked
From the cart Sal shouted, 'Garn, it sarves yer right'
In jumped Bill, and then the pair druv out of sight.

Chorus:

Bill and Sal got spliced a month ago today
For their honeymoon, at Bow they went to stay
Just to rankle me, and finish up the fake
They sends me a pound and 'alf o' wedding cake
They're in business, and a nobby start they've made
As for me, I'm getting broke and losin' trade
Things, in fact, is now a-lookin' precious blue
For I'm seedy, sad, and broken hearted too.

Chorus:
