She Wears the Bloomers Now.
Copyright, 1896, by Thos. H. Murray.
Words and Music by Thomas H Murray.

'Most every girl in this wide world on fashion plate will gaze,
The latest style it makes her smile, gives her the bloomer craze;
With coat and hat and silk cravat you'll see her ev'ry day;
The new woman and all her ban is with us for to stay;
Her dress is very masculine, she smokes the cigarette.
And at a race 'tis straight or place her money she will bet.
But after she will married be, poor hubby then must bow
To his new boss that calls him boss And wear the bloomers now.

She wears the bloomers now, and wears them night and day;
Oh, man, poor man, do what you can, I fear you've had your say,
With maiden or with wife, should you dare to raise a row.
You'd get the boost, she rules the roost, and wears the bloomers now.

In summer time, when all Is fine, at every turn you'll meet
The bloomer girl with trolley curl, she thinks her style complete;
Her action's rude with every dude-in fact, she really flirts,
And thinks it's right both day and night to wear divided skirts;
It's more than happy she would feel to be upon the force;
In mounted squad with Nell And Maud and sit astride a horse,
Has often wrote could I but vote, then man would push or plow,
To hold his own abroad or home, she wears the bloomers now.- Chor.

Some time ago, as you must know, 'most girls they knew their place,
And now they don't or else they won't, but will set out a pace
To go and work as mason's clerk, drive nails, give you a shave,
Conduct a car, attend the bar, for all each jobs she'd crave;
In bloomers quite conspicuous, still she can do no harm;
Upon a wheel contented feel in town or on a farm;
Out all the night till broad daylight for women's rights, she'd vow.
This is the about, we'll knock man out and wear the bloomers now.- Cho.
