YOU HAVE TO STAND IT.
Copyright, 1893, by Frank Tousey.
Written by Norton Atkins. Composed by Felix McGlennon.

We often hear it said that men are brainless, simple elves,
Without the slightest notion how to take care of themselves;
You take a girl out for a walk, and though you plead in vain,
That all you can afford is beer, she says she wants champagne-

Chorus.
And you have to stand it, you have to stand it,
Just like a simple little Ba, Ba, Ba;
You cut a nightly dash, but you've got to find the cash-
Oh! what a lot of Johnny Jugginses you are.

You buy them sealskin jackets and you buy them diamond rings,
And tell them that they really are such darling little things;
And when, at last, you've got no gold, I wonder where you are-
The girl departs, and doesn't even stop to say "ta-ta"-

Chorus.
And you have to stand it, you have to stand it,
Just like a simple little Ba, Ba, Ba;
When you've blown in all your cash, she will find another mash-
Oh! what a lot of Johnny Jugginses you are.

And when, at last, you're married, what a sudden change you find;
There are so many faults to which you hitherto were blind;
On Saturdays, when you come home, she collars all your pelf,
And bungs you with the poker if you want a cent yourself.

Chorus.
And you have to stand it, you have to stand it,
Just like a simple little Ba, Ba, Ba;
While she is drinking gin, you must nurse the little twin­oh! what a lot of Johnny Jugginses you are.
