Copyright, 1893, by Frank Harding.
Written by Will Godwin.
Composed by Charles Williams.

I've been out with a pal of mine
On the spree and on the dine;
We went in for the best of wine
Until we both felt frisky.
Arm in arm we walked along;
"Jolly Company "was our song;
We felt right, but soon went wrong
Low'ring the Irish whiskey.

We're all right when we are tight,
Out all night till the broad daylight,
Wrenching knockers, ringing bells,
Every danger scorning.
Oh, what fun when then the job was done;
Bill spent three pounds, I spent one,
But to stop our fun, we both were run
In front of the judge next morning.

We were right till the clock struck three.
Then saw two girls on the spree;
Bill had one and one had me,
All dangers we were scorning.
Bill kissed my girl, I kissed his.
Oh, what fun the game did fiz,
Eggs and coffee was our biz.
Till the clock struck six next morning.- Chorus.

"What's your game," said a man in blue.
Bill said, "What's that to do with you;
Come on now, for I'll die or do,"
But, oh, he was mistaken.
Our two girls screamed o'er and o'er.
I cried out, "Oh, dear, oh, Lor',"
When up came policemen by the score,
And we all to court were taken.-Chorus.

And the lot in the dock next morn
Stood with faces all forlorn;
Scores of coppers then all were sworn;
They're rather good at swearing.
I blamed Bill and he blamed me;
Our girls blamed us both, you see;
Bill paid one pound, I paid three.
And we all came out that morning.- Chorus.
