Copyright, 1894, by Henry J. Wehman.
Written and sung by Jas. Mc Avoy.

To sing some fanny verses is the reason I am here,
You will find the words and melody are pleasing to the ear;
So do not feel uneasy while I sing this one to you,
I am satisfied 'twill hit you right before my song is through.

For I am only just commencing, yes, I am only just commencing,
Now the first time that I tried &, how the audience they guyed it;
But I am only just commencing, breaking in and just commencing,
It is merely but a starter, just to see what I can do.

Well, the subject I will change; I met a girl last New Year's day,
She thought I was a rubber, for I hadn't much to say;
At first I rather fooled her with an easy going talk,
Till I whispered something in her ear And told her keep it dark.

For I was only just commencing, I was only just commencing,
Well, she nearly turned a twister when I kissed her for her sister;
I was only just commencing, getting fresh and just commencing,
It was but an introduction, just commencing at it new.

I asked her if she'd like a drink, she said she did not mind,
It did not take us very long a beer saloon to find;
I treated over twenty times, she never missed a trick,
And when she switched from beer to booze, it couldn't come too quick.

For she was only just commencing, twenty drinks and just commencing,
I asked her where she stowed it; "Why," she says, "I am not loaded;
I am only just commencing, feeling easy, just commencing;"
I had to shirt to seltzer, while my lady ordered beer.

That night I went home loaded and I didn't have a red,
My wife she pulled my gaiters off and dumped me into bed;
Says she, "What kept you out so late, where did you get this nut?"
She found it down in my pocket, going through my inside coat.

Then I knew she was commencing searching me, and just commencing,
She went down a little further, found a picture, and another;
I could see she was commencing for to do me, was commencing,
Well, my face was like a Hamburgh steak when she was done with me.

A year ago this very night a friend of mine got wed,
And a blushing bride of seventeen he to the parson's led;
While down their way last Sunday night, I made a social call,
To my surprise, you couldn't think, I heard a youngist squall.

They were only just commencing, new married, just commencing,
I whispered to her giblets, says I, "Twins?" Says she, "No, triplets."
They were only just commencing keeping house, and just commencing,
I nearly had a hemorrhage when she told me there were three.
