CAWN'T DO IT, YOU KNOW
By E Cureau.

I have heard people say that they'd startle the world,
But they cawn't do it. you know;
That they'd navigate ships through the air to be whirled.
But they cawn't do it. you know.
And pious Bob Iagersoll's lectures they tell you
To go as you please and in heaven you'll dwell;
That there are honest lawyers who keep out of-well.
But he cawn't do it, you know.

Chorus.
They cawn't do it. you know-
The; cawn't do it. you know. v
Let some clever man try Ingersoll to reply.
But they cawn't do it. you Unow.

They say that John Bull can outsail Uncle Sam,
But he cawn't do it. you know ;
Tried to take the wind out of our yacht Puritan,
But they cawn't do it, you know;
Prove the "Pall Mall Gazette" is a very clean sheet.
That old England will yell young America beat,
That they won't have to come over here for their meat,
But they cawn't do without it, you know.

They cawn't do it, you know-
They cawn't do it. you know.
Master Bismarck tried hard our pork to discard,
But he cawn't do it, you know.

Just show me a country where women can vote,
But you cawn't do it, you know;
Show a true Irishman who will wear a red coat,
But you cawn't do it, you know.
Prove a policeman never " drinks beer on his beat;
That they'll drive all the rats from Chicago's main street;
Just show us a gal in this town with small feet,
They cawn't do it, you know.

Chorus.
They cawn't do it, you know
They cawn't do it. you know.
They often have tried their small anklets to hide,
But they cawn't do it, you know.

They say they cam show us a dude that has brains.
But they cawn't do it, you know;
One who has sense enough to goin when it rains,
But they cawn't do it, you know.
The Schuylkill water, too, drinks very queer I'm afraid, if they do not soon filter it clear,
Philadelphia Quakers will have to drink beer,
But they don't like it, you know.

.
They cawn't do it, you know -
They cawn't do it, you know.
'Twould be very sad news if they'd all take to booze.
For they cawn't stand it. you know.

Show a woman who has not the gift of the jaw,
But you cawn't do it, you know;
Show a man who's in love with his mother-in-law,
But you cawn't do it, you know.
A married man often looks like a gawk,

Who comes home late at night with his coat full of chalk,
And thinks he can sleep when his wife wants to talk,
But he cawn't do it, you know.

Chorus.
But he cawn't do it, you know -
He cawn't do it. you know.
When he tries loud to snore, she will talk more and more,
And he cawn't do it, you know.
