Is it Anybody's Business?
Sung by Miss Clara Bradel

Is it anybody's business, if a gentleman should choose
To wait upon a lady, if the lady don't refuse?
Or, to speak a little plainer, that the meaning all may know,
Is it anybody's business, if a lady has a beau?

Is it anybody's business when that gentleman does call?
Or when he leaves the lady? or if he leaves at all?
Or is it necessary that the curtain should be drawn,
To save from further trouble the outside lookers-on?

Is it anybody's business but the lady's, if her beau
Rides out with other ladies, and doesn't let her know?
Is it anybody's business but the gentleman's, if she
Should accept another escort, where he doesn't chance to be?

If a person's on the sidewalk, whether great or whether small,
Is it anybody's business where that person means to call?
Or if you see a person, as he's calling anywhere,
Is it any of your business what his business may be there?

The substance of our query, simply stated, would be this:
Is it anybody's business what another's business is?
If it is, or if it isn't, we would really like to know,
For we're certain, if it isn't, there are some who make it se.

If 'tis, we'll join the rabble, and act the noble part
Of tattlers and defamers who throng the public mart;
But if not, we'll act the teacher, until everybody learns
It were better in the future to mind their own concerns.
