The other day I took a bos,
Frob here to Cabden Towd,
Ad as it poured with raid,

The bus was full idside,
There wasn t roob for ady bore,
But! the codductor startled us,
By opedig the door.

Spoken: And saying will any gentleman oblige a lady, Well I've always beed doted for by gallantry to the fair sex, so I jumped up ad said I will, where is she? brig her id, You 'll have to get outside first said the codductor, So as I saw the lady was very pretty I thought I'd oblige her, Ad outside I went, and got soaked to the skid -

Chorus: All through obligig a lady,
All through obligig a lady,
A cold id by poor head,
Ad a fortdight id by bed,
Ad all through obligig a lady.

You know the sort of weather

One binute peltig showers,
Ad the dext a cloudless sky,

Just id tibe to catch the shower,
Ad it pelted dowd without a pause,
For dearly half ad hour.

And tubbled idto bed,
Oh,what a state you're id,
By darlig Jod, the bissus said,
She persuaded be at last,
Although I'm stubborn as a bule,
To drink sob boilig water,
Ad put both by feet id gruel.

Chorus: All through obligig a lady,
All through obligig a lady,
The trouble I have had,
Is enough to drive be bad,
Ad all through obligig a lady.
