Where Did You Get That Face?
By Willie Wildwave.
Tune- "Where Did You Get that Hat!

Now I come from old Ireland,
The county of Kilkenny,
Born of honest parents,
Who left me not a penny;
But I am strong and hearty,
Though beauty's left no trace,
I'm troubled by the query:
"Where did you get that face?"

Where did you get that face?
Where did you get that mug?
Isn't it a handsome one?
We'll put it in the jug.
I would like to have one
For a six-day race,
When I go out. they're sure to shout:
Where did you get that face?

If I take in a baseball game,
And sit upon the stand,
The crowd begin to stare at me,
The mascot is at hand;
But if the home club lose that day,
That is no place to be,
They swear that Jonah queered the boys,
And then they'll shout at me:-Chorus.

Now at a masquerade last week
I was feeling jolly,
I had my sweetheart by my side,
My own darling Molly,
At 12 o'clock they all unmasked.
Of course, I did the same,
When all began to laugh at me,
I heard one girl exclaim:-Chorus.
