CAN'T GET OVER A WOMAN.
Sung only by Mrs. Thos. J. Ryan.
Some men seem to think, since creation began,
That a woman was made for a tool;
But the man who would cherish such notions as these,
Is not very far from a fool;
If you think to conjure the gentler sex,
No matter be they old or young,
Just glean information, and find out the way
To stop all the force of her tongue.
For she will call you a duck and a darling, and give you a gentle squeeze;
You know the way a woman can smile when a man she wants to please;
She will smooth you gently down the face, lovingly wink her eye;
You can't get over a woman, my boys, no matter how hard you try.
Now the good that a woman can do for a man,
I am sure you cannot calculate;
She will puzzle her brains to invent a great plan
To keep you from stopping out late;
She will tell you such nice little innocent tales,
And take care she does not get rash:
Then if she wants to coax you, she'll find out the way
To relieve you of all your spare cash.- Chorus.
