Words And Music by Thomas P. Westendorf.

Of all the little trouble- that men are called to bear.
There's none that I can think of so apt to make them swear;
You dress yourself so neatly, but when 'tis done you find
The folks around you smiling; your necktie's up behind.

Your necktie's up, your necktie's up; please bear this fact in mind.
That folks will laugh and joke and chaff if your necktie's up behind.

You start for business early and hurry to the store.
The red-head clerk will meet you all smiling at the door;
He'll shout out when he sees you in voice that seems unkind.
"Excuse me if I tell you, your necktie's up behind." -Refrain.

You call upon a maiden, the one you like the best.
You tell her of your passion in pretty words expressed;
You fondly wait her answer, when suddenly you find
She's only laughing at you. your necktie's up behind.-Refrain

There's nothing can prevent it, no matter how one tries.
For neckties are in fashion and they are bound to rise;
They'll do it. too. I warn you; at least I think you'll find
That, when you don't expect it, your necktie's up behind.- Refrain
