American Old Time Song Lyrics: 20 Adam And Eve
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 20
ADAM AND EVE.
The first of all pas and mammas, I believe,
Was that notable couple, called Adam and Eve;
How badly they acted we all of us know,
And they brought on this world much trouble and woe.
T'other night, while in bed. I saw them appear.
And all they were Saying I managed to hear,
I must have been dreaming, I really believe,
But I'll tell of the sayings of Adam and Eve.
Said Eve unto Adam. I'd like now to know,
Why girls wear their buttons all down in a row,
And Why the young men all take such delight
r In showing their legs through their pants made so tight?
Said Adam to Eve, and why does each Miss
Think a pair of whiskers so nice for to kiss?
Can it be the sweet flavor they love to receive?
Oh: suppose we now try one? said Adam to Eve.
Said Adam to Eve, how can you suppose
Each newly born baby has its papa's nose?
And why do the saints on Utah's far shore
Have twenty young wives, and still wish for morer
Said Eve unto Adam, what makes men who wed
Immediately after get bald on the head?
Now. that it's human nature I cannot believe.
oh' we men have to stand it, said Adam to Eve.
Said Eve unto Adam, I think 'tis a sin,
Each wife should get stout, while her husband's so lean.
And why do the young swells from sense so refrain,
By pawning their shirts to buy them a cane?
Said Adam to Eve, what makes ladies fine
Turn around so scornful when in silks they shine?
A poor girl that's striving by labor to live.
She's above a fine lady, said Adam to Eve.
