It Takes a Girl to Do It Every Time.
Copyright, 1891, by Hitchcock & McCargo Co.
Written and Composed by Matt C. Woodward.

If you ask a man to tell you all about the human race,
He will make you think the men are quite supreme;
Yet although the girls are weaker, they can always find a place,
For they re never quite so simple as they seem.
A man is not content unless a jewel he can flash,
Then he thinks that his appearance is sublime;
But to make him pawn his diamonds And turn them into cash,
Why, it takes a girl to do it every time.

That "marriage is a failure," you will hear the men exclaim,
And they call it penal servitude for life;
Yet I notice that they always seem to get there just the same,
For they find it hard to live without a wife.
But when it comes to keeping house, the husband knows a heap,
And at lighting kitchen fires he's simple prime;
But to stop the baby howling, and to send it off to sleep,
Why, it takes a girl to do It every time.

When men tread on each other's toes they very seldom smile,
But the air is blue for many miles around;
If you brush the hair the wrong way on a fellow's Sunday tile,
The atmosphere with thunder will resound.
But let a man upset his soup upon a lady's cloak,
Though she feels inclined to perpetrate a crime,
Yet a frown is not becoming, so she treats it as a joke,
But it takes a girl to do it every t me.

There are certain things a man can always do with easy grace,
Such as borrowing a dollar bill or two,
But to take a lady shopping, And to wear a pleasant face,
Is a thing a man can very seldom do.
Do you think a man would shopping go from two o'clock till ten
With nothing in his pocket but a dime?
Would he make them show him all the goods, then say he'll call again?
No, it takes a girl to do it every time.

'Tis evening, and the patient wife Is waiting for her hub,
Who tells her that his business keeps him late;
But at that very moment you should near him at the club
Saying, "Hang it, boys, it does her good to wait!"
At last he makes a track for home with many a roll and lurch,
And he tumbles down the stairs he meant to climb, )
And his little wife believes him when he says he's been to church,
Oh, it takes a girl to do it every time.
