Sung by Arthur Corney.

A careful man I've always been, cared for myself, you see;
But I have lately married, and the wife takes care of me;
Man feels much more respectable when Cupid's knot is tied;
So if a loving heart rolls by, with a pretty girl outside-

Oh. take care of it! oh, take care of it!
Though to see you hold it tight will make the people smile.
Oh, take care of it! oh, take care of it!
You'll And that with a little care 'twill last you such a while.

Perhaps to Paris you may go, just for a little spree;
You boldly face the dangers that await you on the sea;
Your wife and other valuables are in the cabin stored.
And if you've had a hearty meal before you go on board-Chorus.

A patch upon your trousers, when they're getting rather thin,
Though ugly, gives more comfort than the cold draught pouring in;
You see a sixpence in the street, don't stoop or make a snatch;
Though diamond rings be at your feet, remember well that patch. -Chorus.

You get upon a train and find a timid little maid.
Who says, that of dark tunnels she is very much afraid:
Be fatherly, and place your arm around the Little dear.
And when you to the tunnel come, just tell her not to fear.-Chorus.
