GO 'WAY, GAL.
Copyright, 1898, by Otto Bonnell.
Composed by Otto Bonnsll.
When I go promenading, as oftentimes I do,
The ladies stop to look at me, because my style is true,
Miss Nina Perkins and Sally Simpkins,
And all the fashionable gals say now de do, but I say
Go 'way, gal, I want no truck with you;
O go 'way, gal, your pedigree's too new:
Now go 'way gal, your style will never do;
I wear a silk-lined overcoat, and I fly too high for you.
O I say go 'way, gal, I want no truck with you;
Go 'way, gal, your pedigree's too new;
0 go 'way, gal, your style will never do;
I wear a silk-lined overcoat and I fly too high for you.
They all have set their eyes on this 'stinguisht-looking man.
And in their inmost soul they say I'll get him if I can;
They're all in line, but they're losing time.
For this coon's no ordinary Clark Street black and tan. for I say-Cho.
Some coons get mighty jealous, and then call me a dude.
But that's just ignoranciousness, and don't do dem no good;
They guy my walk, but you hear me talk.
There is Just one proper coon, and this here am the one, and I say-Cho.
