My old friend Gus is always in some trouble and some strife;
I never knew a more audacious fellow In my life!
Whenever he goes out with me, in search of drinks to roam;
he gets a "skin-ful," And upon a shutter he goes home-

So do I-ha, ha, ha, ha! So do I-he, he, he, he!
By his wife he then gets sat on-goes to bed with boots and hat on,
So do I-ha, ha, ha, ha! So do I -he. he, he, he!
Of course, he gels kicked out of bed-and so do I.

The things that he gets up to-well, they're little short of crimes
(I've tried to make him better, and reform him many times,
But all in vain), he will act on the wild, unruly plan-
Why, When he meets his girls he vows that he's a single man-

So do I-ha, ha, ha, ha! So do I-he, he, he, he!
When the darling girls he meets 'em (naughty man) he always treats 'em,
So do I-ha, ha, ba, ha! So do I-he, he, he, he!
he tells 'em oh, such fairy tales-and so do I.

It's really quite alarming -for the things he gets up to
Are utterly disgraceful-well, you'll think it, p'r'aps, untrue-
We go to see a ballet, pay, and sure as eggs are eggs,
he'll take his op'ra-glass like this And criticize the legs-

So do I-ha, ha, ha, ha! So do I-he, he, he, he!
Then he says, "You pretty creature, I could really almost eat yer!"
So do I-ha, ha, ha, hu! So do I-he, he, he, he!
He stands 'em champagne suppers then-and so do I.

Once we were flirting with two girls ('twas most delightful sport),
When suddenly our wives popp'd in-Oh, we were fairly caught!
Of course, they kicked up ructions, and with reason, you'll agree,
For Gus-the horrid, faithless wretch-had one girl on his knee-

So had I -ha, ha, ha, ha! So had I-he, he, he, het
Yes, his wife came in And found her, while he'd got his arms around her!
So had I-ha, ha, ha, ha! So had I-he, he, he, ho!
Next morning he'd a broken nose-and to had I.
