Give Him One More As He Goes

 

My sweetheart is a shy little miss

And one I fondly adore

And when you ask her for a kiss

She'll give you just one and no more

 

She'll give you just one and no more

She'll give you just one and no more

And when you ask her for a kiss

She'll give you just one and no more

 

Her dad was feelin old man

He always had a feelin for me

I can tell you when this feelin began

When his daughter I first went to see

I was bidding my sweetheart good night

In the usual manner you know

When a voice from the house said stick him towse ?

And give him one more as he goes

 

And give him one more as he goes

And give him one more as he goes

When a voice from the house said stick him towse ?

And give him one more as he goes

It was over the garden wall in a manner I'll tell you not slow

He exclaimed with a swear and his foot smote the air

And I'll give him one more as he goes

 

 

And I'll give him one more as he goes

And I'll give him one more as he goes

He exclaimed with a swear and his foot smote the air

And I'll give him one more as he goes

Notes: In 'Give Him One More' the words 'seek him,Towse' are referring to the family dog - 'Towser' is an old dog's name. like 'Buster'. A clever rhyme for 'house'.Justin Ward
