SO WOULD I.
Copyright, 1892, by White-Smith Music Publishing Co.
By Dan Braman.

If, to keep up with the fashions, you are asked to sing a song,
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
If upon some current topic you are asked to come out strong,
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
Some think that public matters are a horrid bore, but I
Like people with opinions that they're ready to stand by.
If ever for your country's flag you are asked to die,
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.

If your wife should say to you some day, "Dear Ma we must invite,"
Would you do it? No, we wouldn't. Nor would I.
And if the old gal came and with you seemed inclined to fight,
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
She'd want to run the blessed house, she'd stamp and rave and shout;
My wife, of course, would take her part, with many a sob and pout,
And in sarcastic tones would say, "Oh, chuck my mother out! "
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.

When you leave a dear girl at the door, you think you'd like to kiss,
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
If she "kicks" and says, "Now, don't you ever do a thing like this! "
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
They say a woman's "No, I won't" is really meant for "Yes,"
That when she pouts and flouts about she wants one more caress:
Now, should she try the thing on you, what then? come, give a guess-
Would you do it? Yes, we would. So would I.
