As Soon as the Honeymoon's Over.
Copyright, 1893, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Arthur West.

Love Is not what it used to be,
That is plain to both you and me;
Now Chicago has made the break,
Love is often a splendid mistake;
He's not happy in single life,
She's not happy till she's a wife;
So they play the hymenial course,
Finishing up with the old divorce.

Oh! how silly young people are,
Leaving home, their ma and pa,
{Spreading their sails when young Cupid prevails,
Fancy they're living in clover.
That's all right for a month or two,
Then his bank-book is nearly through,
You don't want him and he doesn't want you,
As soon as the honeymoon's over.

Once, wherever the lady went,
She was used to a compliment;
Now, if anyone speaks to her,
Husband jealous And starts to swear.
He's not happy, ah! there's the rub,
Soon he misses his cosy club,
Ma-in-law comes and stays a week,
Husband and wife are afraid to speak.- Chorus.

Back in town with his friends of yore,
Evening finds him at home no more;
Business keeps him till late in town,
Business means putting whiskey down;
She's invited to ev'ry ball,
Ev'ry dancer is at her call;
Love's calm ocean is now a gale,
The newspaper tells us the same old tale.- Chorus.
