The world is made up, as you know, of many sorts of men,
Some stay out late, while others like to go to bed at ten.
Some roundels never will go home without a parting ball,
And, sad to say, we meet with some who won't go home at all.
nut speaking of our fellow-men, it wouldn't do, you see,
For everyone to think alike, on that we all agree.
While other folks try other means to let the time go by,
I like to take the ladies out, and here's the reason why:

I love the ladies, the pretty little ladies,
I love the ladies, short and tall.
Of all I'm very fond, of brunette as well as blonde,
I love the ladies, bless them all.

You've often heard it isn't good for man to be alone,
I had a dear, sweet charmer once and thought she was my own.
We talked of life, its ups and downs, its sorrows and its loves,
For hours and days, for weeks and months, we billed and cooed like doves.
Of course I thought I was the very happiest of men,
But I confess I'm better posted now than I was then,
And all went well and merrily up to the wedding-day,
When suddenly another fellow waltzed my girl away.

I love the ladies, the pretty little ladies,
I love the ladies, so do you.
It isn't quite the thing so to keep us on the string,
I love the ladies if they're true.

While out to take a quiet stroll, a little while ago,
I met a merry maid who "winked the other eye," you know.
Of course I introduced myself, she was so cute and gay,
We strolled on, talking pleasantly to pass the time away.
We wandered 'round for quite a while, we took in all the sights,
We rambled through the park until they put out all the lights.
At-last as it was getting late, the hour of parting neared,
The merry maid, my watch and chain, together disappeared.

I love the ladies, the pretty little ladies,
I love the ladies, big and small.
I'd like to see again one who has my watch and chain,
I love the ladles, but not all.
