Words and Music by Arthur West.

I remember when a girl my Granny said to me,
"I've something, dear, to tell you,' as I sat beside her knee;
She then put on her glasses, and in accents kind and low,
Said, "Mary, I must tell you now, you're old enough to know:

"All young ladies should know the ways of the bold, wicked men,
Don't go where they make you,
But go where they'll take you,
And always be home when the clock suites ten.

"My young man has often told into my willing ear,
Full many tales of untold gold he'd earn for me, his dear,
Ah! but the gold is for away, us far as I can see.
And very often, by the way, he borrows some from me.- Chorus.

"I don't listen to the tale that we have lost the train,
For I've been there before, and never mean to be again;
And I don't think a girl should give her kisses in advance,
But wait until you're married, and you'll never miss the chance." - Cho.
