Ill Bet You a Dollar You Dont

Does any one know what I'm going to say?
I'll bet you a dollar you don't,
If I lose the wager, will any one pay,
I'll bet you a dollar you don't.
Gay bachelors say they never shall take wives.
For as each in his way to be happy contrives.
They mean to keep single the rest of their lives,
But I'll bet you a dollar they don't.

Find an Irish election, without any row,
I'll bet you a dollar you don't,
Or a girl who objects to a mistletoe boughh,
I'll bet you a dollar you dou't.
Some years of experience teaches me this-
That from seven to ninety both Mrs. and Miss
May refuse you this ancient excuse for a kiss,
But I'll bet you a dollar they don't.

You may see vaccination a thing of the past,
I'll bet you a do'lar you don't,
And heavy taxation abolished at last,
I'll bet you a dollar you dou't.
You may see old John Bull dwindle down to a calf.
And his provender nothing but foreigner's chaff.
You may see all the ladies too quiet by half,
But I'll bet you a dollar you don't.

Some ignorant croakers wear visages long,
Will you bet me a dollar they don't?
And say that to visit amusement is wrong.
Will you bet me a dollar they don't?
Though to succor distress they can never afford,
Above human vices they always have soared,
Still somehow they know every move on the board.
Will you bet me a dollar they don't?

A married man often tries to prove cock-o'-thewalk,
But I'll bet you a dollar he don't,
If he tries to sleep when his wife wants to talk,
I shall bet him two dollars he don't.
So all you young girls, please attend to this verse,
And go and get married for better or worse,
And two little armfuls you may have to nurse,
Won't bet a dollar you don't.
