I'M SORRY THAT I DID.
Copyright, 1895, by II W. Petrie.
Words by Winnie Black. Music by H. W. Petrie.

I called one night on Lizzie Jane, and got there rather late;
I thought I'd just surprise her and go in the garden gate;
The night was dark us Egypt, and the air was like a fog;
I could not reach the window, so I jumped upon a log,
But a ripping sound convinced me I had jumped upon the dog.

Chorus.
And now I'm very sorry that I did,
And now I'm very sorry that I did:
A ripping sound convinced me I had jumped upon the dog,
And now I'm sorry, very sorry that I did.

Not long ago I bought a mule that had a gentle face;
He followed us around the yard, the pet of all the place:
The neighbors didn't like his voice and said "go twist his tail;
'Twill surely stop his braying, the cure will never fail."
I went and twisted once or twice, and then I took a Bail.

Chorus.
And now I'm very sorry that I did.
And now I'm very sorry that I did;
I went and twisted once or twice, and then I took a sail,
And now I'm sorry, very sorry that I did.

I tried to be a doctor once, and set a broken arm.
I pulled the elbow out of joint, and did a lot of harm;
I put a mustard plaster on the patient's tender breast;
I gave him lots of tonic, so he wouldn't lose his rest,
But when I gave the bill to him I got a broken chest.

Chorus.
And now I'm very sorry that I did,
And now I'm very sorry that I did:
For when I gave the bill to him I got a broken chest.
And now I'm sorry, very sorry that I did.

A friend of mine once built some wings, all fixed so he could fly.
I had a little trip to make: "they're just the stuff," said I;
He tied the wings upon my back. I got upon the shed:
"Don't worry, dear, I'll soon return." that to my wife I said.
I went upon my muscle, but I came back on my head.

Chorus.
And now I'm very sorry that I did,
And now I'm very sorry that I did:
I went upon my muscle, but I came back on my head;
And now I'm sorry, very sorry that I did.
