WHAT IT IS.
Copyright, 1893, by White-Smith Music Publishing Co.
Words by Geo. Gilbert Music by D. L. White.

Do you ever feel you don't know how, and you'd like some one to tell you,
So some other day. you then as now, will know just what to dor
You know that I know just how it is myself-
I whistle at trouble, catch on to this yourself.-[Whistle.]
Spoken-Tell us what it is.

Chorus.
It is waltzing with your girl is the jolliest fun of all;
Take a gentle "whiz" and you'll find that's "what it is."
Tra la la la la la, you'll find that's "what it is" ;
Tra la la la la la la la, you'll find that's "what it is."

Are you ever pressed to pay a bill, awful short and try to borrow;
Cannot make a raise, go where you will, must settle it to-morrow?
You know that I know just how it is myself;
I whistle and dodge it, you can do so yourself.-[Whistle.]

Spoken-Tell us what it is.- Chorus.

It you're ever asked to sing a song when you're out in company,
Never be afraid, but come out strong, strike up this melody:
You know that I know just how it is myself;
So whistle, or sing it, and see how 'tis yourself.-[Whistle.]

Spoken-Tell us what it is.- Chorus.
