WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Copyright, 1891, by Willis Woodward & Co.
By Hattie Marshall. Sung by Miss Lottie Gilson.

I think I've got a song here that is going to be a winner;
What do you think?
I think my friends will like it; if they don't, I'll buy a dinner;
What do you think?
I tried it on a dog one night, the rest I hate to tell;
His death was hard, but then you know, perhaps, 'twas just as well;
There are no dogs in heaven, so I think that he's in h-!!
What do you think?

I think the girls are most exasperating in the summer;
What do you think?
I think a man that runs with one has got to be a "hummer";
What do you think?
They wear dresses cut down low and show their pretty skin;
But a fellow has no chance at all without a lot of tin;
I think to furnish poor men girls they soon ought to begin;
What do you think?

I think it's wrong for hubby to stay out and get a "jag";
What do you think?
I think when he comes home it's wrong for a little wife to nag;
What do you think?
If she would only have a little pitcher by the bed,
All filled with nice cold water to soothe his aching head,
I think, myself, in such a case, a man would drop down dead;
What do you think?

I think a girl that takes a drink is oftentimes called rapid;
What do you think?
But I think I like her better than the good girl mild and vapid;
What do you think?
She has a charm that's all her own and wins you every trip;
She calls you "pet" and "dear "and 'round your dollars gets a grip;
I think it's best to see her once and then give her the slip;
What do you think?

I think it must be lots of fun to sit down in the front row;
What do you think?
I think that most men like to flirt with ladies in the show;
What do you think?
They send us flowers and lots of notes and tell us pretty things;
Why don't they take a "brace "just once and send us diamond rings?
I think 'twould be the easiest way to win a girl that sings;
What do you think?

I think that Mr. Cleveland is a man of good sound brain;
What do you think?
I think be knew his business when he planned this little game;
What do you think?
I think he hoped to have a boy and call him "Grover," too;
I think he must have sighed when nurse presented Ruth to view;
But I think his chance is just as good as with a boy, don't you?
What do you think?
