Words by George Murphy.

Now if you will listen I'll sing you a song.
If you yust addention will pay;
It ain'd very shord und it ain'd very long,
It's about schlang you hear every day.
You've heard "Pull down your vest " und "Wipe off your chin,"
Und "Go lay down "und "Give us a rest."
But de latest one out is when de little boys shout:
"Say, mister, go button your vest!"

Say, mister, go button your vest,
For heaven's sake, button your vest;
Go and bury your feet, shave de hair off your teeth,
Und den go und button your vest. (Repeat.)

While walking along de street t'other day,
I met such a charming young girl,
She flirted mit me as much as to say,
Come und speak-my head was in a whirl.
I spoke und I treated to oysters und beer,
I spent every cent I possessed,
I ask her to kiss me, when she said, oh dear.
Then she laughed und said, "Button you vest.-Chorus.
