As sung by Tony Pastor.

A word of advice I'll give to the girls,
If they will but listen to me:
If the men do not like it it's little I'll care,
If the girls with me will agree.
Should a young man wink at you while passing the street.
Don't laugh or he'll do so again;
Pretend you don't see him and pass on your way,
And never encourage the men.

Don't ever be flattered with what they may say,
Though they call you a rare little gem;
For if you allow them just one little loss,
They surely will kiss you again.

If your lover's pocket should ever get light,
Of course he'll explain all to you;
Then he'll say, "Little darling, will you be so kind
As to lend me a dollar or two?"
If you lend him five dollars to-day, bear in mind,
To-morrow he'll surely want ten;
So cling to your purse, and don't act like a fool,
And never encourage the men.-Chorus.

But when in the ball-room you're dancing so gay,
With a handsome young man at your side;
He vows that he loves you, and says that some day
He will surely make you his bride.
And if he should pinch you and give you a hug,
Stand up for your rights there and then;
And just tell him quickly he'd better behave,
And never encourage the men.-Chorus.

And if out to the park you should go for a walk,
And should happen to meet a young swell,
With his gold-headed cane and his big diamond pin.
(Dame fortune has favored him well).
Don't look upon him any more than a man,
For George is no better than Ben;
But just pass him by, pay no heed to his sigh.
And never encourage the men.-Chorus.
