I DO FEEL SO AWFULLY LOOSE.
Copyright, 1876, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
I've been dining and wining to-day, you can see.
In a manner remarkably loose;
And to go on the spree I know would suit me,
For I mustn't go home, 'tis no use.
Oh, I do feel so gay, so reckless and gay,
My spirits so lively and spruce;
I could dance, sing or play in a juvenile way,
For I feel so awfully loose.
I do feel so awfully loose,
I do feel so awfully loose;
Of course you can see I'm out on a spree,
For I do feel so awfully loose.
I was walking and talking along Broadway,
And feeling decidedly loose;
I was laughing and chaffing with ladies so gay,
The excitement must plead my excuse.
All at once I descried a girl by my side.
And my heart went pit-pat like the deuce;
For I give you my word this would not have occurred,
Had I not felt so awfully loose.-Chorus.
Then to woo and to coo I embraced every chance,
In a style that was certainly loose;
For I pressed her to go to the Argyle to dance,
And really would take no excuse.
I said 'twould be bliss if she gave me a kiss.
And to raise her veil tried to induce;
Who is that? on my life! I've been courting my wife,
Oh, I did feel so awfully loose.-Chorus.
Now what she said and I said may easily be guessed,
We both felt remarkably loose;
The dispute grew so warm that I thought it be best
To leave her by way of a truce.
So I left her behind and comfort I find
In imbibing the generous juice;
Oh, I shall get it hot but I don't give a jot,
For to-night I am out on the loose.-Chorus.
