Keep Your Nose Out of My Bonnet.
Copyright, 1893, by Frank Tousey.
Words and Music by Felix McGlennon.

I've popped in to give you a word of advice,
Keep your nose out of my bonnet;
This is the new style, boys, and isn't it nice?
But keep your nose out of my bonnet.
Now don't I look fetching when dressed up like this?
You think to embrace me would yield you such bliss;
Toil may feel as if you must give me a kiss,
But keep your nose out of my bonnet.

Chorus.
Oh, my bonnet, oh, my bonnet! The fellows wink as past I glide;
And they shout, "I'm on it,"
But it's not my bonnet, it's the tricky little face inside.

I met our young doctor and to him did cry,
"Keep your nose out of my bonnet;
I wish you would see what I've got in my eye,
But keep your nose out of my bonnet."
"It's only your eyelash," said he with a smile,
Then gently removed it in very good style;
he looked in my face quite a jolly long while,
But he kept his nose out of my bonnet.

Chorus.
Oh, my bonnet! oh, my bonnet The fellows wink as past I glide;
And they shout, "I'm on it,"
But it's not my bonnet, it's the tasty little face inside.

My own lover called and unto him I said,
"Keep your nose out of my bonnet;
You may sit by my side, but take care, Master Fred,
That you keep your nose out of my bonnet."
Mamma and papa had both gone out to tea,
And Fred sat so close-well, as close as could be:
And then he made me "squatty vous" on his knee,
But he kept his nose out of my bonnet.

Chorus.
Oh, my bonnet ob, my bonnet! The fellows wink as past I glide;
And they shout, "I'm on it,"
But it's not my bonnet, it's the fetching little face inside.

I've got a big sister, her name's Mary Ann,
Keep your nose out of her bonnet;
In the parlor one night she sat with her young man
Who oft gets his nose in her bonnet;
Said he, "Oh, my darling, my love is so true.
To prove my affection, oh, what shall I do?"
My old Dad was list'ning and shouted, "Hi, you!
Just keep your nose out of her bonnet."

Chorus.
Oh, her bonnet! oh, her bonnet! The fellows wink as past they glide;
And they shout, "I'm on It,"
But it's not her bonnet, its the yummy, yummy face inside.
