Sung by Arthur Roberts.

If you ask rue the title of this little song,
Well, it's off-very much off!
I don't mean by that that the color is wrong.
But off-very much off!
What it all is about you may know when I'm gone.
Or find out the subject I'm "singing upon,
What the deuce does it mailer now what it is on?
When it's off-very much off!

Now the love of my heart said, "Come out for a row,"
We were off-very soon off!
And I said, as I rowed, "I am pulling it so,"
We're off-very much off!
But the boat it capsized, we went in then and there;
I seized hold of her tresses luxuriantly fair.
When her head became bald, in my hand was her hair,
Right off-very much off!

Said a chap, to the ball we had better be gone.
We were off-very much off!
I only found out he was very much on,
When off-very much off!
There a beautiful lady I met, I confess,
Dressed in shoulder-straps belt, be the same more or less,
With voluminous skirts, but the rest of the dress
Was off-nearly all off!

I have heard from the girl who should soon be my bride,
It's off-very much off!
So I started at once for the merry seaside,
I was off-very much off!
I met with a friend, so I thought I'd explain
At a neighboring bar all that troubled my brain;
We had five drinks apiece-when I looked for my train,
It was off-very much off!

I have loved her for years, for years, that is on
And off-specially off!
I told her my passion, she answered, "Begone!"
Be off-very much off!
She said, sir. how dare you? I blush for your cheek,
But the rain it came, oh! while the lady did speak.
And the beautiful flush which did mantle her check,
'Twas off-very much off!

I thought that I'd go for a ride in the Row,
I was off-galloping off!
The horse and I started together, you know,
We were off- very much off!
The horse gave a buck, just as some horses might,
My grip of the saddle I'll own it was slight.
At the end of the game, well, the horse was all right,
I was off-very much off!
