You Can Do It, If You Want To.

I once was deep in love with a charming little dear,
And when in her society I always felt so queer,
I mustered up my cluck and asked her for a kiss,
She blushed and hesitated, and answered like this:

You can do it, if you want to,
For I really can't resist you;
You are such a charming fellow,
To refuse you is absurd.

As time passed on I found I'd have to get a wife,
I asked her if she'd like to be my better half thro' life;
Her answer was, yes, so to papa I went,
As I'd money plenty, why, he quickly gave consent.
Spoken- Yes, as I was well fixed, so I asked the old gent for
his daughter's hand, heart and so forth. "Well, I've no objection,
of course; you know Galatea hasn't any money, but as you love
her, why, that don't make any difference, and as to marrying her
my dear boy, why, " -Chorus.

I went with rapid steps to tell her of my plan,
And found her sitting on the lap of a handsome looking man;
I scarce believed my eyes, and started with dismay,
And as she whispered in his ear, I plainly heard her say:

Spoken- "Nevermind, Charley, even if I do marry that snoozer.
it won't make any difference, I'll love you just the same as ever."
Jemess River! wasn't I mad; I told her she was false to me and
that I would never marry her, that I would not believe her if she'd
make a statement; and as for Charley, why, he could have her and
welcome. I told her I would leave, and she would never set her
eyes on me again. I hope I may never if she didn't say:- Chorus.

The moral of my talc you all can plainly see,
Don't marry any girl, my boys, tho' handsome she may be,
Unless she love but you, I guess you'll find I'm right,
They're bound to have a Charley when you're out of sight.

Spoken-Yes, and till I've got to say is, if any of you chaps
want to marry such a girl as that, why,-Chorus.
