For One Day of Turkey There's Six Days of Hash.
Copyright, 1885, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Will J. Hardman.

For one faithful friend there are dozens who sneer,
For one happy laugh there is always a tear;
For one rosy cheek there are many cheeks pale,
For one who's successful there's hundreds who fail;
For one Distil of joy there are weeks of regret,
And each dollar squander'd we seldom forget;
'Tis well then to think when cutting a dash.
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash.

Chorus.
Then don't spend your pennies on nonsense and trash,
There's no telling when with misfortune you'll clash;
Go slow, or you'll find when you're all out of cash,
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash.

For One wealthy girl there are dozens that's poor,
And all that they own is a mind good and pure;
For one gentle dog there are dozens that bite.
And oft when the sun shines a cloud is in sight
Whenever you see a good friend acting wild.
This warning to him whisper softly and mild:
Remember, old boy, while you're spending so rash,
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash.

Chorus.
When out at the elbows and all gone to smash,
And down the side streets from old faces you dash,
You'll hear the wind mourn while it cuts like a lash,
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash.

Quite often these words you will hear on the street,
here goes a poor fellow it pains me to meet;
He once was the pride and the talk of the town,
But thro' his own folly to-day he is down.
When up in some attic you sigh for a meal.
And folks point you out as a shabby genteel;
The truth of this song o'er your memory will flash,
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash.

Chorus.
Then don't spend your pennies on nonsense and trash,
There's no telling when with misfortune you'll clash;
Go slow, or you'll find when you're all out of cash,
For one day of turkey there's six days of hash
