I'm Going to Tell on You, Katie.
Copyright, MDCCCXCV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by George C. Edwards.

Sisters are nice to have sometimes,
But I think they're oft in the way;
For instance, when you have a sweetheart,
Then three is a crowd, so they say;
I've a sister quite young, but she had such a tongue,
And whene'er I took her out,
If I met a beau, she'd look at me so,
And then shake her finger and shout:

"I'm going to tell on you when home I go;
You'll get a scolding then for acting so;
You've been flirting all the day;
And when I go home I'll tell on you, Katie!"

How I would coax her with candy,
To just make her hush for a while;
But nothing would keep her tongue quiet;
She'd pout, and she never would smile;
Then wherever I went, she to go still was bent;
Snre to quarrel on the way;
No matter who heard, she'd have the last word,
And this is what she'd always say:-Chorus.

Now, I am married and settled,
And happy as happy can be,
Still singing a song to the baby,
While granny is making the tea;
We've a neat little home, and it's all, all our own,
So our hearts are light and gay;
And that sister small, I never near bawl
These words that she oft lined to aav.-Chorus.
