She'd Never Been There Before.
Copyright, 1897, by Wm. B. Gray
Words by Murray and Leigh. Music by Geo. Le Brunn.

My sister Sue was just about the shyest girl I know,
She never seemed to understand the way to treat a beau;
Her young man asked her recently to sit upon his knee,
When she at last consented, she behaved so bashfully.

Chorus.
She'd never been there before, she'd never been there before,
She felt so shy until Charley, dear, started to whisper in her ear,
Stories of love so sweet, which filled her with delight,
She'd never been there before, but now she's going there every night.

One night a big policeman was a strolling on his beat,
And chanced to turn his lantern down an "alley" from the street,
The cook was standing on the steps, she cried, "Oh, dearie, me,"
I feel so very lonely, won't you keep me company.

Chorus.
He'd never been there before, he'd never been there before,
He found the cookie a regular treat, and such a lovely place to eat,
Cuddled the cookie's waist, and squeezed it nice and tight,
He'd never been there before, but now he's going there every night.

A lady friend of mine whose husband's such a stingy man,
Resolved at last to work upon the good old-fashioned plan;
So while poor hubby slept one night, she seized upon the chance,
Jumped out of bed and dove into the pockets of his pants.

Chorus.
She'd never been there before, she'd never been there before,
She felt so awfully pleased to see hubby a-snoring peacefully.
Only took fifty cents and nearly died with fright,
She d never been there before, but now she's going there every night.

A preacher had a notion once that made him very sad.
He used to think that ballet girls were ev'rything that bad;
Said he, "I'll go and preach to them," he meant to give them "beans,"
But didn't he feel funny when he got behind the scenes.

Chorus.
He'd never been there before, he'd never been there before,
He got on well with the ladies there, one of the girls she curled his
Showed him the way to dance, it filled him with delight. [hair:
He'd never been there before, but now he going there every night.
