The Man with the Red Neck-Tie.

Words and Music by Wm J. McGaw.
I'm the center of attraction wherever I may go;
Not in cause I am a dude-that you all do knowIt's all because I wear a certain kind of tie:
My friends, it's all because I wear a red neck-tie.
I always carry a cane, just to give me style.
And part my hair in the middle, to make the ladies smile;
I'm the envy of them all, as I hold my head up high,
As I walk down the street with my red neck-tie.
I'm a sporty man with a sporty tie,
I'm the darlin; of the ladies, I always make them sigh;
Wherever I may go, I look so very fly,
I'm the dandy of them all with my red neck-tie.
Of course, I always have my coot buttoned up so tight;
You'll be sure to see me out 'most every night,
And when the pretty girls they do pass me by,
If you'll only watch me, you'll see me wink my eye.
And when the summer comes, to the seashore I go;
'Tis there I have a jolly time, where the salt winds blow;
I dance at all the parties and bathe where waves roll high.
And, of course, I always wear a red neck-tie.- Chorus.
