WITH ME

The man who composed this remarkable song,
With me!
Said, p'raps it might go that's if nothing went wrong,
With me!
And though very oft he's been heard to declare,
The words are ridiculous, so is the air,
The oofish it makes he's willing to share,
With me!

A friend said come on have a liquor old pal!
With me!
I mumbled out, 'No' but he said, 'Yes you shall'
With me!
The barmaid said, 'That will be eightpence I think.'
He didn't pay up but he tipped her the wink,
And made her believe he was having that drink,
With me!

Said I to a girl, fly to some foreign shore
With me!
I swear you'll be happy my love evermore
With me!
She told she had thought of changing her lot,
I wispered, 'Tomorrow, we'll meet at this spot.'
Next day she eloped I regret to say not,
With me!

Said I to a sportsman come out for a row,
With me"
And after some time he consented to go,
With me!
He whispered, 'The natives my boy we'll astound.'
We did for a few moment after I found
He'd upset the boat and he nearly got drowned,
With me!

My wife as a rule is good tempered but not,
With me!
And sometimes I fancy she'll go off her 'dot'
With me!
A pretty young widow once knocked at our door,
My wife said, Who is it? ah! speak I implore.'
Of course she insisted she'd seen her before,
With me!

A pal said come out for a jolly good lark,
With me!
They'll take you of course for a rollicking spark,
With me!
He foolishly tried a big bobby to cheek,
The very next morning before I could speak,
He got seven days from a bald-headed beak,
With me!
