I've Only Been Out with the Boys.
Copyright, 1882, by Wm. J. A. Lieder.
Words and Music by Tommy Tucker. Arranged by Jos. Schwenseck.

'Bout one month ago I got married, and, of course, I'm not quite settled down;
On a Saturday night I'm inclined to with the boys, take a stroll 'round the town.
I come home about two in the morning, when I think everything is serene,
But I find that my young wife is waiting, to ask what does such conduct mean.

Spoken-After going through my pockets she asks where I've been, so I just
tell her:

I've only been out with the boys, my dear.
We made quite a noise and got full of beer,
And that is the reason I act so queer,
I've only been out with the boys.

Of course, she does then pout and tell me that she will go home to her ma,
And just for a joke I do ask her to please come and light my cigar.
I then tumble down on the sofa, while she has a short little cry.
And when she says this is a nice time to come home, I only reply:-Chorus.

Now when I wake up in the morning, I promise the pledge I will take,
And tell her if she wants a favor, I will do anything for her sake.
We're happy and friendly once more, like two turtle-doves on a tree,
Till Saturday night comes around again, and I have another good spree.

Spoken-And when she scolds, all I say is:-Chorus.
