Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 61
As Long As It Pleases the Ladies.
Copyright, 1898, by Carl Fischer.
Words by Charles by Music by Richard Stahl.
Rude men give me the guy as I go by,
Crude men are Jealous of me. and I know why.
Plain men gaze with a smile at my dainty curls;
Coarse men laugh at my style, but it suits the girls.
And as long as it pleases the ladies, the ladies, the ladies,
As long as it pleases the ladies, I care not what men may say.
As long as it pleases the ladies, the ladies, the ladies,
As long as it pleases the ladles, I care not what men may say.
Rubies and diamond rings and costly pearls
Are Just the things that will always suit the girls;
Girls all prize them most highly and can't get enough,
Man, poor man, Is the fool, hustling for the stuff.- Chorus.
Op'ra house man comes in to see the play.
Vacant chair in front of him, nothing in the way;
in comes lady fair, wearing hat three feet tall,
Sits down in vacant chair, man can't see at all - Chorus.
Man leans over and whispers in lady's ear.
Asks her politely to please remove her headgear;
She turns 'round with a scorn and says, very rude of you;
Just pay attention to me and laugh when I do.-Chorus.
