TWIGGY VOO.
Copyright, 1893, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by Richard Norton. Music by Geo. Le Brunn.

When you're giving folks advice, or you're telling stories nice,
I shouldn't tell the end if I were you;
For to cut it short is best, you can let them guess the rest,
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!
When young Jones, at number four, rushes headlong from the door,
Calls a cab, says, drive to Doctor Lord-knows-who,
He turns with doctor, then it's worse; "there are two, sir," says the nurse-
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!

Chorus.
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!
Well, of course, it stands to reason that you do;
To the force and reason in it, you can tumble in a minute;
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!

When it's raining like a flood and the streets are full of mud,
What lots of pretty girls appear on view;
Tho' their dresses look so neat, yet they like to cross the street,
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!
As they stand on corners near, how the fellows watch each dear.
Married ones and single ones-of course, they do-
And ev'ry male, for miles around, then is staring at the ground,
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!- Chorus.

Now the darling girls all wed, just for love, we hear it said-
At least, in all the novels so they do:
But a nice engagement ring, set with diamonds, is the thing,
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!
If an old guy falls in love with some little turtle dove,
And he says, "I've lots of gold, pray, wed me, do!"
She'll say, "Just settle on me, dear, twenty thousand cash a year."
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!- Chorus.

When a lady finds a note in her husband's bus'ness coat,
A letter that is signed by Maud or Loo,
He will say 'twas one he found just outside, while looking 'round-
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!
If that night he journeys out and she follows him about,
She will find him with a girl in pink or blue;
He'll say it is his niece, Miss Brown, who came suddenly to town,
Twiggy voo, my boys! Twiggy voo!- Chorus.
