You Might Fool a Young Man Once, but You Cannot Fool Him Twice.
Copyright, 1893, by llsen & Co.
Words And Music by Sig. S. Schiff. Arranged by Eugene Angell.

You girls you are such pretty things, you're always on the catch;
You think you can do everything and cannot find" your match,
But you'll be surely badly left when a man you'll find
Who will not spend his hard-earned cash and then be left behind.

Now, why don't you try to be good and listen to what I gay-
Do not flirt with every man: you'll find it does not pay;
But you think you know it all, you'll not listen to advice-
You might fool a young man once, but you cannot fool him twice.

Once I strolled out in the park for a quiet walk,
I met a little lady fair, we had a pleasant talk;
She promised she would go next day to a social hop,
But she was like the rest of you and never did show up.-Chorus.

I fell in love with another girl, she promised to be mine;
i treated her to many things like ice cream, beer and wine;
Then she bought dresses, jewelry-for them dear I paid-
She gave me then the grand G. B., And this is what I said:- Chorus.
