Just a Little More Than That.
Copyright, MDCCCXCVI. by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by Harry S. Miller.

No doubt you've had a sweetheart, boys, now some time in your life,
One that you loved dearly, and perhaps is now your wife;
of course you called on Sundays, when the parlor lights were low,
And us they weren't low enough, you turned them down, you know-

Chorus.
Just a little more than that, just a little more than that,
Just enough, as love is blind, while the girl she didn't mind
When you took her on your lap, told her lots of stuff at that-
You know the way they do when left together.

A young girl in society, when 'round her happy home,
Wears a stylish collarette, her shapely neck not shown,
But meet her at receptions, or an up-to-date pink tea.
It's then you meet her at her best, and, naturally, you see-

Chorus.
Just a little more than that, just a little more than that,
Just enough, you really know-what they call a proper show-
Oh, but when she turns her back, it's a little more than that-
You know the way they do in society.

A girl when out a-shopping in the early days of spring,
When alighting from a car her skirts like this will swing;
A pretty foot And hose are seen, just all she means to show,
But see her where the water's salt, And then, of course, you know.

Chorus.
Just a little more than that, just a little more than that,
Just enough, that she's aware, that will make the chappies stare,
As she poses on the beach, always out the water's reach-
You know the way they do at Coney Island.

A chappie with ten dollars met a pretty girl one night,
'Course they both had supper, and they drunk in fond delight;
He settled with the waiter, but the change be saw it not;
It took him weeks to save that ten, some say the maiden got-

Chorus.
Just a little more than that, just a little more than that, .
Just enough to keep his room for at least another moon-
What he didn't spend that night, why the girl got that all right-
You know the way they do it on the Bow'ry.
