Reel 13, Item 9
The Little Black Mustache
Once I had a charming beau and I loved him dear as life,
And I always thought the time would come that I would be his wife,
He said we'd live in the grandest style, and oh we'd cut a dash,
With a diamond ring, a watch and chain, and a little black mustache.
Oh the little black mustache, the charming black mustache, And every time I think of it my heart beats quick as a flash? The little black mustache, the charming black mustache,
And a diamond ring, a watch and chain, and a little black mustache.
There came around a sour old maid, she's worth her weight in gold,
She had false teeth and she wore false hair and she's sixty-five years old,
He suddenly deserted me for that old maid's cash,
And now you know why I lost my beau with the little black mustache.
They live across the street in the grandest mansion old,
She married for his black mustache, he married for her gold, Now my dear young friends, oh do not be so rash As to fall in love with a handsome chap if he has a black mustache.
