YOUNG MEN TAKEN IN AND DONE FOR
 
div
 
As smart a man as ever lived was I, when in my prime.
Until I met Miss Lucy Jaggs, she knocked me out of time.
I called there for apartments, for I'd noticed once or twice
A card stuck in the window, and on it, this device.

Chorus: 'Young men taken in and done for'
Oh, I never thought that she.
The girl I left my happy home for
Would have taken in and done for me.


Being a lonely single man, I wanted lodgings bad
So Lucy Jaggs's mother then soon showed me what she had
I'd not stayed there above a week when Lucy came to me
And fondly kissed me on the cheek, then sat upon my knee.

Chorus:

Of course, just like a stupid, I must go and tie the knot
That brings us bliss and happiness - but that's all 'tommy rot'
I don't believe my wife loves me; it's the truth I'm telling you
A wife can't love her husband much if she beats him black and blue.

Chorus:
