I'LL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN .
Copyright, 1893, by The International Music Company.
Composed, Written and Sung by Hovey Cook.

Since I was old enough to know, I thought I'd like to be
An actor in a comic show, a comedian, you see.
An engagement I did secure: I had not much to do;
I only had to sing a song and speak a word or two.

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again;
Displeasure was shown and an egg was throw a, so I'll never go there again.

I used to court a lovely girl, and it was my delight
To call upon tins Little pearl 'most ev'ry Sunday night.
Her papa did not like my suit, for that I did not care,
I took one of her pa's best suits and put it on right there.

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again;
Pa saw me in his suit, let fly his boot-oh, I'll never go there again.

I once went down to the seashore to bathe within the sea,
A few good bathers there I saw, in the surf I longed to be.
A quarter for a suit I paid, I got one very small;
Into the surf my way I made, I plunged in once, that's all.

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again;
As I took my dip my suit gave a rip-oh, I'll never go there again.

To a race track I took a trip to see the horses race,
A friend gave me a dead-sure tip. a good horse for a place.
I put my money on the horse and played him one, two, three;
I saw him start around the course to win a pile for me.

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again;
My horse, well, he led, in the stretch dropped dead, so I'll never go there again.

I went to paint this city red one night as stars shone bright;
I found the city was not dead, I found it lively quite;
Into a concert hall I went, some one they called me "jay."
"Ruts "at a girl I yelled who sang "Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay."

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again;
A big bouncer he did attend to me- I'll never go there again.

There is a charming social game, and it. I like to play;
Draw poker is its only name, I played but yesterday.
I got three aces, think of that. I thought I'd surely win;
I thought I'd bluff, said I'd stay, pat, and one man he stayed in.

Chorus.
I'll never go there again, I'll never go there again:
The man who stayed in on four queens did win; I'll never go there again.
