I've lost my gal through a pal o' mine as was
Always wi' me nar, I'll tell yer why becos;
Me And 'im was partners in a donkey cart,
That's what made me introdooce him to the tart.
One day I sez, "Bill, I wants the cart to-day,"
'E sez, "Me too," in a aggrawatin' way;
As I did not want to go and needle 'im.
I takes my gal along o' me to wheedle 'im.
Never introdooce your donah to a pal,
Cos the odds is ten to one he sneaks your gal;
He'll stand her whelks and porter,
And upon the sly 'e'II court her.
Never introdooce your donah to a pal;
Take my tip.
Always keep yer blinkers on yer gall
Once I spotted Bill and Sal a makin' eyes.
Then he goes and lushes 'er, to my surprise;
I sez, "Look 'ere, this is far beyond a joke,"
He sez, "Chuck it, else I'll land yer on the boke;"
I spars up, but though yer won't believe the fact.
In one snort round I gits both my peepers black'd.
From the cart Sal shouted, "Gar'n, it sarves yer right;"
In jumped Bill, and then the pair druv out o' sight. - Chorus.
Bill And Sal got spliced a month ago to-day,
For their 'oneymoon, at Bow they went to stay;
Just to rile me, and to finish up the fake,
They sends me a pound and 'alf o' weddin' cuke.
They're in business, And a nobby start they've made,
As for me, I'm gettin' broke and losing trade;
Things, in fact, is now a lookin' precious blue,
For I'm seedy, sad, And broken-'earled too.- Chorus.
