THIS IS UNEXPECTED.

The other night, to my delight, my friend says, won't you come
Along with me, two girs to to see, and have a good night's fun;
Just down the street, and there we'll meet these darling girls so gay;
Now don't say no, but come and go-so, of course, I had to say:
This is unexpected, it's really unexpected,
For Jack, my friend, was never known to take to girls before;
Gayly I reflected, his offer I accepted,
And this surprise to me, indeed, was really unexpected.
Soon my friend introduced me then unto each darling Miss,
And to a chair I led one where we'd talk in perfect bliss,
But soon she said, I'm 'most afraid you want to kiss me, sir;
Oh, no, says I-well won't you try-so, of course, I said to her:
This is unexpected, It's really unexpected;
For such a girl as she, indeed, I never met before;
Gayly I reflected, her offer was accepted;
She didn't seem to mind it much when she got what she expected.
The evening passed with many a glass, and numerous other things;
The girls drank port, we'd lots of sport, the darling little things;
Then midst nor fun, papa had come home from his lodge quite gay,
Then through the door we went, both sore, which made us swear and say:
This is unexpected, wholly unexpected,
For Jack and I we got it where we ne'er got it before;
Sadly I reflected, we never once expected
That dad was up and out so late, then come home unexpected.
