TAKE A DAY OFF, MARY ANN.
Copyright, 1891, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Brabant.

Now listen to me, Mary, and hark to my advice,
Indeed, let every servant girl just think it over twice;
Don't stay out in the area to string the baker's man,
But wait until your time comes 'round, then take a day off, Mary Ann.

Chorus.
Then take a day off, Mary Ann, go put on your velveteen gown,
Bid adieu to your madam, ta-ta, go bring out your Japanese fan,
Slick close to your beau wherever you go, oh, take a day off, Mary Ann.

Don't court him in the kitchen, I mean your steady beau,
It makes the gas bill very high for Mrs. So-and-so;
Don't send him to the corner to till the growler can,
But wait until your time comes 'round, then take a day off, Mary Ann.- Chorus.

Now don't you draw your wages, I mean before they're due,
Because Miss Nancy cross the way is better dressed than you;
Go decorate your bankk book, for that's the wiser plan,
And wait until your time comes 'round, then take a day off, Mary Ann- Chorus.

Now hold your conversation, yes, hold it very low,
For there's a pipe that reaches up to the parlor floor, you know;
The madam hears you talking, so tell the baker's man
To wait until your time comes 'round, then take a day off, Mary Ann.- Chorus.
