Words and Music by Walter Phoenix.

Some people you know have peculiar ways,
Did you ever take note on the street?
They look and they squint at you as you pass by,
From your head to the soles of your feet.
If you're out after dark, you'll hear them remark,
Did you catch on, Jimmy or Ted?
Jee whiz, what a stunner, get on to that bummer,
But here's some remarks I heard said:

By jove. Jack, did you catch on to that?
Ain't she a la-la? she's a daisy!
Did you see her look at me?
Just my size, she'll set any man crazy.
I'll bet you ten to one it's easy catching on,
I know it for she has a roguish eye;
See her looking back, by jove, Jack,
She'll be mine, bye-and-bye.

Now the girls are the same, though they act very shy,
You would think they were angels sublime;
If you look at some cross-eyed they turn up their nose,
At the same time remark there goes mine.
The naughty young girls all love to be teased,
Though they tell us we're going too far;
Still they ain't got the spunk to say bring your trunk,
And board with me and my ma.-Chorus.

Did you ever take notice to young people court?
How bashful they act for a while;
With their yes, dear, and no there, and ta-ta good-night,
And screw up their face when they smile.
It's different, you know, when you court an old maid,
You kiss her she'll ask you for more;
She's one of the perts, she knows how it works,
She'll tell you, I've been there before.-Chorus.
