I Couldn't Refuse Them, My Darling.
Copyright, 1893, by Louis Him.
Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.

Last night I was out with the boys, you can bet,
And jolly good fellows each one that I met;
Of course, you can see that I'm not sober yet,
But I'll he all right bye and bye.
This morn' I turn'd in, it was just about three;
My wife she says, "Charlie's been drinking, I see."
Bays I. "Well, my darling, you cannot blame me,
The boys, one and all, they would cry-

'Have another, just another:
Come, Charlie, old man, I know you can stand
Just another, have another.'
I could'nt refuse them, my darling."

I told her, of course, "I was down to the club,
And I was elected the president of,
And couldn't get away any sooner, my love,
For we were a jovial set.
We toasted you, darling, we praised you, divine,
We drunk your good fortune a dozen of times;
But still, I'll admit, we were floating in wine,
And still I can hear them cry yet-

Have another, just another;
Come, Charlie, old boy, I know you'll enjoy
Just another, have another.'
I couldn't refuse them, my darling.

"We drank to our members, our sweethearts and wives,
We wished them good health for the rest of their lives;
And not one among us could any despise,
All jolly good fellows, I vow.
For case after case, how the Champagne did pop,
And while the wine sparkl'd we all were on top,
And not till the last did a one of us stop,
But, oh, if they'd only say now-

Have another, just another;
Come, Charlie, come back, don't leave us like that,
Just another, have another.
I could'nt refuse them, my darling.
