American Old Time Song Lyrics: 13 Johnny, Take It Easy
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 13
JOHNNY, TAKE IT EASY.'
Some may talk of pretty girls,
And others say they are awful sweet;
And some will say: "See, there she goes!"
And look at her pretty feet.
But wait until you get married, boys,
And nurse the young ones on your knee;
And then your trouble does begin,
And you wish you were in New Jersey.
Spoken-If I dare say a word to my wife when I know she is
in the wrong, she always says to me:
Take it easy, Johnny, dear!
Johnny, take it easy!
Don't get cross, for I am the boss,
It's best to take it easy I
When I got home the other night,
Something looked quite strange to me;
A great big fellow with an umbrella,
Sitting where I ought to be.
Oh! goodness, gracious, what is this?
I nearly fainted on the floor;
When she put her arms around his waist,
And kissed him good-night at the door.
Spoken-Who is that, my dear, you kissed at the door? That?
that? Why- Chorus.
