American Old Time Song Lyrics: 07 Call Her Back And Kiss Her
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 7
Call Her Back and Kiss Her.
There's nothing half so charming
As a happy married life,
And nothing so alarming
As a vixen for a wife.
But as you make your bed, you know,
So on it you must lie,
Tis useless then to make a fuss,
Take my advice, don't try.
A woman's sure to go her way,
But when she's gone we miss her;
So when you've had an angry word,
Why, call her back and kiss her.
A wife will surely rule the roost,
Of course that's very proper;
And if she means to rule you too,
I don't think you can stop her.
Be never cruel, always kind,
Do nothing that will tease her,
And if you wish to happy live,
You'll do your best to please her.-Chorus.
A woman's sure to have her way,
For that we cannot blame her;
The remedy, ah! then I say,
"Tis kindness that will tame her."
Be always gentle, never harsh,
And mind you do not flout her;
Remember you're but helpless men,
And cannot do without her.-Chorus.
That woman is our greatest joy.
Let every man reflect;
Don't treat her like a worthless toy,
Nor slight her by neglect.
If you possess a woman's love.
What more does any need?
In sickness or in health she'll be
A comforter indeed.-Chorus.
