Words by Arthur Trevelyan. Music by H. W. Petrie.

Of course, you've seen the dear, sweet thing that's called the human man,
Of whom the naughty soubrettes sing and cuddle if they can;
Go East or West, but don't forget, you'll find him just the same;
He'll pop up ev'ry where, and yet the dear boys not to blame-

He was made for the ladies only, ladies only, ladies only.
Men often would like to do things that are meant for ladies only;
Some things are for ladies only, ladies only, ladies only.
Men often would like to do things that are meant for the little dears.

We've heard a lot about the hats our up-to-date girls wear,
They look just like Chicago flats, built 'way up in the air,
And tho' they think the play is "rats," you'll find them In each row;
They only go to show their hats, so poor men get no show.

Chorus.-They are made for the ladies only, etc.

One night while passing by a ball, outside which stood a crowd.
And thinking it might be a ball, to which all were allowed,
I quickly walked up to the door and said," May I come In?"
They told me 'twas a lecture for preventing grievous sin.

Chorus.-And it was for the ladies only, etc.

Now all the girls have tried to ape the men's clothes made so neat.
So dudes all try to make their shape look like the women, sweet.
They wear corsets just like the girls, while girls wear ties and shirts;
Men comb their hair in pretty curls, but have not yet donned skirts.

Chorus.-They are made for the ladles only, etc.
