Then You Wink the Other Eye.
As sung by Marie Loftus.

Say, boys, whatever do you mean
When you wink the other eye;
Why, when you tell where you've been,
Do you wink the other eye?
You preach your wives such stories, you can tell them just a few.
Just met an old acquaintance, or the train was overdue;
And when the simple wife believes that every word is true,
Then you wink the other eye.

Say, boys, now is it quite the thing:
Say, should we let you have your fling;
Uh, when you've got us on a string.
Then you wink the other eye.

Say, boys, you meet a turtle-dove,
Then you wink the other eye;
First sight, you madly fall in love,
Then she winks the other eye.
You take her thro' the city for a pleasant little stroll,
And up against a jeweler's shop by accident you roll­She'd like that lovely diamond brooch, you find you're in a hole,
then she winks the other eye.-Chorus.

In court a breach of promise on,
Then they wink the other eye;
Up steps the maiden all forlorn.
Then they wink the other eye.
She tells the Judge her story with the salt tear in her eye.
How the villain woo'd and won her-here she heaves a bitter sigh-
How he used to kiss and cuddle her when nobody was nigh,
Then they wink the other eye.-Chorus.

A sweet, young creature calls a cab,
And she winks the other eye;
"Right, mum! "another fare to grab,
Cabby winks the other eye.
Her purse, alas! is empty, but somehow she must get there;
She whispers something in his ear, then it's "Drive to Leicester Square."
"All right-jump in! " says cabby [pause] oh, "Cabby knows his fare,"
For he winks the other eye.-Chorus.
