Its Funny What Lager Will Do.
Sung by Leslie and Hardman.

I awoke up this morning with a terrible head,
I was nervous and I had the shakes,
I had to use a shoe-horn to put on my hat,
I imagined that I had the snakes.
For I had been drinking a little too much,
Which made me feel awfully blue,
I'd given the world for a cocktail,
It s funny what lager will do.

Chorus.
It will make a man fight,
And stop out all night,
Get arrested and get ten days, too,
It will make a man stutter,
And sleep in the gutter,
It's funny what lager will do.

Make him join the marines,
Live all Winter on beans,
And put him in a terrible stew,
It will make him a bum,
By the copper get run,
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.

It will make him eat clams,
And have the jim-jams,
And sometimes get him dubbed black and blue;
It will make a man lazy.
And drive him near crazy,
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.

It will put him in rags,
Make him drain old beer kegs,
And various other things do;
And when he gets broke,
All his clothes he will soak,
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.

, ' It will make him a fool,
Get him stuck playing pool.
And banged o'er the head with a cue;
And if he is flush,
It will soon make him lush.
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.

Make a man soon repent,
When he ain't got a cent.
You bet he'll feel awfully blue;
Made a man in the gallery
Spend all his week's salary,
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.

It will make a man stout,
It knocked Sullivan out,
Though he says the report is not true;
It made the coachman skip off
With Morrisania's fair daughter,
It's funny what lager will do.-Chorus.
