Written for Sam Devere by Joseph Tabrar, of London, England.

When I go to a theatre a private box I occupy,
To notice all the pretty little darlings on the sly;
I don't like girls in long sleeves, but I really must confess,
I much prefer ladies in a slightly low-necked dress.
Spoken:-You know, not too low, but-

Just a little, just a little,
I don't like to behold them when they are dressed below the shoulders:
Tho' it's proper, strictly proper
To wear their dresses open just a little.
All things in this world I think there's nought like married life,
And every fellow ought to have at least one true and loving wife;
But wives should ne'er permitted be to talk to other men.
And men should only be allowed to flirt just now and then.
Spoken:-Not flirt too much, but-

Just a little, just a little.
Such as kissing sweet every pretty girl you meet;
Which is proper, strictly proper
For a married man to travel just a little.
I don't like girls who walk out without holding up their skirt,
And let them dangle on the ground to sweep up all the dirt;
In fact as far as I'm a judge I think young ladies ought
To have their trains cut off and wear their dresses rather short.
Spoken:-Not too short, but-

Just a little, just a little.
If they wore them slightly shorter they would always have a courter:
And it's proper. strictly proper
To wear their dresses shorter, just a little.
