HOW D'YE DO, CHOLLY, BOY?
Copyright, 1891, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Percy Gaunt.

In times gone by the fashion was to grasp the hand quite firm-
In fact, the pressure was so strong, it almost made you squirm;
But that's all changed, and chaps now hold your tips in manner new;
With hands up high and blase eye, it's Cholly, how d'ye do?
How d'ye do, Cholly, boy, how d'ye do?
I'm really charmed, delighted just a few;
No more that nasty grip, we give the latest tip-
How d'ye do, Cholly, boy, how d'ye do?

Then wives and maidens used to give a gentle, loving kiss,
It wasn't on the level, still it wasn't much amiss;
The dame of fashion now decrees the kiss they must taboo,
They give a tip, a gentle nip, it's Molly, how d'ye do?
How d'ye do, Molly, dear, how d'ye do?
I'm really charmed, delighted just a few;
No more that nasty kiss, we do it just like this:
How d'ye do, Molly, dear, how d'ye do?
