As Bung by Ned Barry, In One of the Finest

To be obedient is a plan
I've acted on through life,
And on this simple principle
I always treat my wife;
The other day her cousins came,
Each one a charming; Miss,
And like a loving relative,
I gave each one a kiss.

Spoken-Four sweet girls, two kisses each, upset the wife; she
looked knives at me, and said, "You and your kisses, you haven't
had enough; kiss them again; then kiss the servant girl-go on."

I did it. I did it,
It didn't take me long!
I did it, I did it,
I didn't think it wrong;
The wife kicked up a rumpus,
Of that you may be sure;
I only did as I was bid,
A fellow can't do more.

I'm always most impatient if
The dinner should be late,
And in my temper once or twice
I've smashed a dish or plate;
Last Friday week the mid-day meal
Was later than before,
So in my rage I raised a joint
And dashed it on the floor.

Spoken-The wife said, "That's a sensible thing to do with a
beautiful joint of beef, now perhaps you'll throw the greens and
potatoes at me. " -Chorus.

One night, well I'd been dining out,
And felt, hie! well, just so,
As jolly as a sandboy sort of
Feeling, don't you know;
I tumbled gently into bed,
But scarce began to dose,
Before the wife suggested that
I'd best take all the clothes.

Spoken-'Twas a frosty night, but-Chorus.

Her family all sponge on me,
And think I take it in;
Their flattery, I mean, just like
Her mother swallows gin;
At last they raised my temper, for
They came it just too hot,
So I declared I'd cut. away,
And so cut all the lot.

Spoken-And a nice lot, too, as for mother-in-law, well, words
fail me now, but they didn't on the occasion of her last visit;
came to dine and lived with us three months; I said, "I can't stand
this. " The wife said, "Of course you're tired of poor, dear
mother; you'd like to show her the door. " -Chorus.
