American Old Time Song Lyrics: 10 I Wouldn't Advice You To Do It
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 10
I Wouldn't Advice You to Do It.
Written and sung by Joe Hart.
The name of the song Tin about to sing is:
I wouldn't advise yon to do it;
Be careful don't meddle with other people's biz,
For I wouldn't advise you to do it.
Beecher he prays and sings old-fashioned chants.
Sarah Bernhardt wants to do a black-face song and dance,
And all the ladies in New York are going to wear men's pants,
But I wouldn't advise them to do it.
Mrs. Langtry says she'll never come here again,
Well, I wouldn't advise her to do it;
For her acting gives us a terrible pain.
So 1 wouldn't advise her to do it.
Ben Butler went out the other night on a tare.
Hugged and kissed Belva Lockwood, and called her hid dear,
And swore he'd go to Egypt and be President next year,
But I wouldn't advise him to do it.
President Cleveland is thinking of taking a wife.
But I wouldn't advise him to do it;
He's tired of sleeping alone these Cold winter nights.
Then I wouldn't advise him to do it.
For the first six months she will call him dear,
After that she will waltz him around by the ear;
Then we'll have a female President in the Presidential chair,
So I wouldn't advise him to do it.
