There's Nothing Surprising in That.
Copyright, 1883, by F. A. North & Co.

As model examples most men like to pose,
And there's nothing surprising in that;
They're saints in disguise, and they'd have you suppose
That there's nothing surprising fan that.
This hypocrisy both young and old now affect.
Their morals, they'll tell you, are strictly correct,
But if heaven they reach, as they seem to expect,
There'll be something surprising in that.

Chorus.
Now don't be surprised at whatever I say,
The truth I'll not try to combat,
But if a few facts before you I lay,
There'll be nothing surprising in that.

When a married man stays out at night rather late,
Why, there's nothing surprising in that;
To his wife he explains urgent business can't wait,
And there's nothing surprising in that.
If he hums, in his innocent glee, a small song,
While he struggles to tell her what kept him so long,
Of course, he'll receive the full length of her tongue,
But there's nothing surprising in that.-Chorus.

In passing I must say a word of the dude,
Oh, there's nothing surprising in that;
If I didn't he'd deem me exceedingly rude
And there's nothing surprising in that.
I've a plan, which I think will redound to his fame.
As a piece of antique ware we'll give him a frame.
If to brighten our home as a chromo he came, .
Why, there's nothing surprising in that.-Chorus.

In politics honesty sits on a throne.
And there's nothing surprising in that;
Politicians for honor their services loan,
And there's nothing surprising in that.
They cannot be tempted, I do not know why,
To take any bribe if there's any one nigh,
But if you get their votes without fees on the sly,
There'll be something surprising in that.-Chorus.
