Reel 390 Item 15
When a man is gone on a pretty little girl
He talks as gentle as a dove
He spends all his money
And he calls her is honey
Sure is solid in love.
When the money all gone
And the clothes are few
I'll tell you one thing true
That a bird in hand is worth two in the bush
What is a fellow going do.
When the rent is high and The kids they cry Because there's no grub to chaw You hawk with son and loaded gun to vacinate your mother-in-law.
So boys keep away from the girls I say And give them lots of room You'll find when you wed They bang you till your dead With the ball end of the broom.
