NOT THAT I WISH TO SAY ANYTHING WRONG
As sung by Tony Pastor.

Now it's not that I wish to say anything wrong,
Not for the world, not I;
But you can't help noticing some little things
That daily occur on the sly;
While walking along down the street here to-night,
A neighbor of mine passed me by;
Well, it was not his wife he had on his arm,
But I shall say nothing, not I.

Chorus.
For it's not that I wish to say anything wrong,
Not for the world, not I;
But you can't help noticing some little things
Just as you are passing by.

There's Jenkins, the bobby, he lives next door to me,
But his house is much finer than mine;
And it's strange how he does it on ten dollars a week,
While my wages exceed twenty-nine;
He's got a gold watch and a beautiful guard,
And some rings that would dazzle your eye;
But how he came into possession of these,
Why, I shall say nothing, not I.-Chorus.

Besides, there's Miss Brown, now she lives in our street,
But she dresses remarkably gay,
And however she can do it on nine shillings a week
Would puzzle a lawyer to say;
At night she is seen with so many young men,
That to find out I mean to try,
And mind if I find she does anything wrong,
Why, I shall say nothing, not I.-Chorus.

Well, again, there's Miss Green, who has led a fast life,
To a banker was going to wed;
But somehow the marriage has been broken off,
Through flirting too much, it is said;
But while passing her house one evening this week
A baby was heard for to cry;
Well, they say it is one she has taken to nurse,
But I shall say nothing, not I.-Chorus.
