CHUMP! OR, THEY DID ME UP.
Copyright, 1889, by Benj. W. Hitchcock.
Words and Music by M. H. Rosenfeld.

How often folks are nicely done and right before thtir eyes.
At least that's been the case with me, the truth I don't disguise;
A friend of mine in confidence said: "If you want some tin,
Go in for backing horses and there's not a doubt you'll win."

Chorus.
They did me up, just like a simple gilly,
I thought I was doing immense, you see,
Little dreaming at all they were doing me,
Oh, what a roast! now I'll bet a dollar
They'll not get a chance in a hundred years
To do me up again.

Acquainted at a party I became with Miss McGee,
I fancied Nancy very much, and thought that she liked me;
A friend of mine said: "Take her out, she lots of cash has got,
And if you make love to her, dont forget to make it hot.

Chorus.
She did me up, just like a simple gilly.
I thought I was doing immense, you see.
Never dreaming at all she was doing me.
Oh, what a roast! now I'll bet a dollar
She'll not get a chance in a hundred years
To do me up again.

While going home I took a cab, a week ago to-night,
It wasn't long before I found the driver he was tight;
We went smash up against a post, and o'er went the lot.
The gang: said "You get up and drive, the driver he cannot."

Chorus.
They did me up, just like a simple gilly,
The copper, ah! me he did quickly grab
For not having a license to drive a cab,
Oh, what a roast! now I'll bet a dollar
They'll not have the chance in a hundred years
To do me up again.
