Oh! Solomon, You Are So Wise.
Copyright. 1891, by Frank Tousey.
Words and Music by Felix McGlennon.

Solomon Sobersides courted a girl,
Solomon Sobersides didn't long falter;
Ere he had been many weeks on a mash,
He led his dear little girl to the altar;
He thought she'd ne'er had a lover before,
But she'd been spooned on by over a score;
There they were clustered around the church door,
Laughing And Joking and singing.

Oh! Solomon, you are so wise; oh! Solomon, you've won the prize,
Mashed the girl, bought the ring; Solomon, you don't know everything.

Solomon Sobersides took the girl home:
All her old mashes at once followed after;
Solomon asked his dear wife to explain
What was the meaning of their jeers and laughter?
What did they mean poking each other's ribs?
Why did they whisper about maiden's fibs?
Why did they say: "Twig his fat-headed nibs?"
What did they mean by their shouting?- Chorus.

Solomon Sobersides lived with his wife
For a few weeks very happy in clover;
Neighbors will talk, so he laughed at their hints,
But ere the honeymoon was so long over,
Wifey let drop hints of something concealed,
Something that very soon would be revealed,
Showing that be was not first in the field,
For one day she to him whispered:- Chorus.

Soon was the terrible secret divulged,
Solomon realized he was a baby;
When he was married, well, nearly three months,
There came to him such a nice little baby,
And home from school came a half dozen more
Rough boys and girls, who turned out such a bore;
Solomon's wife had been married before,
That's why the neighbors all shouted:- Chorus.
