SHE'S COMING HOME, TONIGHT
 
div
 
At the house at twenty-two,
There's a nice old hullabaloo;
While his wife has been away,
Mister Brown's been rather gay,
With their pretty servant girl,
'Affections' he has shown,
And she's vowed to tell his wife,
As soon as she comes home.

Chorus: And she's coming home tonight,
Coming home tonight,
Soon he'll be ruing,
Things he's been doing,
Every where he goes he sees the old red light,
For Mrs. Brown is coming home tonight.

At the house at twenty-two,
Mister Brown is in such a stew;
Brown, the servants fairly scared,
And she says she won't be squared,
She's refused the box of chocolates
Brown bought her and swears,
She'll tell mistress how he tried,
To squeeze her on the stairs.

Chorus: And she's coming home tonight,
Coming home tonight,
Soon he'll be ruing,
Things he's been doing,
And Mister Brown goes through the hoop tonight,
All hands on deck there's going to be a fight.

Mrs. Brown will get a shock,
When she learns that he's pawned the clock;
When she hears that he's been tight,
And been staying out all night,
Mary Jane she says she found him,
Sleeping on the floor,
Dressed up in a lady's hat,
She's locked that in the drawer.

Chorus: And she's coming home tonight,
Coming home tonight,
Soon he'll be ruing,
Things he's been doing,
Every where he goes he sees the old red light,
And Mister Brown will get no sleep tonight.

Now the house is calm and still,
Mister Brown looks dreadfully ill;
Though he's pleading fairy tales,
Mary Jane's as hard as nails,
She's made up her mind to tell his wifey everything,
And she's going to show her where,
Brown tore her apron string.

Chorus: And she's coming home tonight,
Coming home tonight,
Soon he'll be ruing,
Things he's been doing,
Every where he goes he sees the old red light,
And Mister Brown will want a wig tonight.
