American Old Time Song Lyrics: 36 I'll Whistle In The Rest
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 36
I'LL WHISTLE IN THE REST.
Copyrighted. Words and Music by Sam Devere.
I'm going to sing a song, and I'll try and do my best- [Whistle.]
If I don't say all I mean, why I'll whistle in the rest.-[Whistle.]
If you don't quite understand me, don't go and make a kick,
But have a little patience till you get on to the trick:
If you can't catch on, why then, of course, your heads are very- [Whistle]
I'm, perhaps, the most respectable young man upon the earth- [Whistle.]
I never smoke, I never drink, and scorn all vulgar mirth-- [Whistle.]
I do not like to bear them sing those naughty songs, do you?
I only love the beautiful, the pure, the good, the true,
So its no use expecting it, you won't get any-[Whistle.]
The Salvation Army racket is a very lively game- [Whistle.]
But the brothers and the sisters they all get there just the same-[Whistle.]
Such song and dance religion I am very sure is shamm'd;
With such a lot of rubbish I'm not anxious to be cramm'd;
I'd rather take my chances, if I wouldn't I'll be- [Whistle]
