HADN'T NO BUSINESS TO DO IT.
Written and sung by Jas. McAvoy.

I'll tackle this song if I drop in my tracks,
But I haven't no business to do it;
It would serve me just right to get hit with an axe,
For I haven't no business to do it.
The manager tells me to do my whole act,
That's whether the house is empty or packed,
And if I cut it out I would surely get sacked,
So you see I've no business to do it

Chorus.
No, I haven't no business to do it,
No, I haven't no business to do it;
Should I sing out of key, it is common with me,
For I hadn't no business to do it

When a man he is drunk-well, you know what he gets,
Well, he hasn't no business to do it;
And you know what they say when you smoke cigarettes,
And you haven't no business to do it.
When you light cigarettes they smell like a burnt rope,
You might as well hit a good pipe full of dope,
For they make you look foolish, you feel like a mope,
And you haven't no business to do it.

Chorus.
Now, I hadn't no business to do it,
But I am happy to say I got through it;
The Richmond fine cut will get you off your nut.
Now, you haven't no business to do it

One day a young lady she wrote me a note,
Still, she had no business to do it;
I said I'd be there, so in answer I wrote,
But I hadn't no business to do it.
I whispered some sweet strains of love in her ear,
Says she, "Do you love me?" -she then called me "dear,"
So she called her young brother, and sent him for beer,
But she hadn't no business to do it.

Chorus,
She hadn't no business to do it,
I'd done it myself if I knew it;
She chased the duck twice, for I hadn't the price,
It was none of her business to do it.
