Reuben, Reuben, I've a notion
If the men were sent away,
Far beyond the stormy ocean,
Female hearts would all he gay,
Cynthia, Cynthia, I've been thinking
If the men should take that trip,
All the women in creation
Right away would take that ship.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
What a strange thing it would be
If all streams of drinking water
All turned salty as the sea.
Cynthia, Cynthia, I've been thinking,
You can safely take my word,
More than half the population
Wouldn't know it had occurred.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
Will you tell me where or when
Women will be forced to stop this-
Doing things just like the men.
Cynthia, Cynthia, I've been thinking,
And can answer with dispatch,
She must cease her mannish methods
When she comes to strike a match.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking
Why do people risk their gold
Betting on the wicked races,
Knowing they are bought and sold.
Cynthia, Cynthia, I've been thinking,
That is where the laugh comes in,
Each man thinks that he has fixed it,
So the horse he backs will win.
