Darling Black Mustache
I once did have a charming beau I loved him dear as life.
Surely I thought the time would come When I would be his wife.
His pockets they were lined with gold And Oh! he cut a dash,
With a diamond ring and a watch and chain And a darling black mustache.
He came to see me one Saturday night,
He stayed till almost three,
He said he never loved a girl As well as he loved me.
He said we'd live in the grandest style For he had plenty of cash;
And then upon my lips he pressed The darling mustache.
And then there came a sour old maid,
She was worth her weight in gold.
She wore false hair, she wore false teeth,
She was seventy-five years old.
And then he married this old maid For all her silver and gold.
Now they live across yon street In that mansion tall.
And every time I think of this My heart quick with a dash now For you see I've lost my beau With a darling black mustache.
