Words and Music by Felix McGlennon.

If a young man to his sweetheart says, "You are my darling bright;
If you'd ramble down the lane with me, 'twould fill me with delight;
If the maiden says, "I'd rather not-at least-well, not at night,"
Oh, she knows a bit-yes, she knows a bit.
If the couple seem to linger just outside the garden gate,
If the mother comes out crossly and she says, "Excuse me, Kate;
I don't think it is judicious for a girl to stop out late,"
Oh, she knows a bit-yes, she knows a bit.

Oh, she knows a bit, just a little bit,
And a hundred dollars I would lay to ten
That she knows a bit, just a little bit-
Well, it's good to know a little now and then.

Should a masher storm a widow's heart, with honied words galore,
And be sweetly paints a picture of the happy times in store,
Should the widow then remind him that she's buried three or four,
Oh, he thinks a bit-yes, he thinks a bit;
Well, if then our gay young masher seems us if inclined to flee,
Will the widow cry, "Oh, ducky, you must really stay for tea; "
If three hundred pounds of widow drops upon his trembling knee,
Oh, he sinks a bit, just a little bit.- Chorus.

If a husband to his wife says, "I've some business with Jack White,
We have got a lot to talk about, I may be late to-night,
So you needn't sit up, darling; you'll see, I'll come home all right,"
Oh, he knows a bit-yes, he knows a bit.
If the wife says to him, "Don't you know, you're looking rather queer,
And I do not think you're well at all: you work too hard, I fear;
So to bring you safely home again, I'll go with you, my dear,"
Oh, she knows a bit-yes, she knows a bit.-Chorus.

If a wifey to her husband says, "On saving I am bent;
We have got an empty room, my dear, 'twould just suit some nice gent.
And a young man lodger's money would about just pay the rent,"
Oh, she knows a bit-yes, she knows a bit;
If he says for young men lodgers, darling, I don't care a jot-
Let us have a lady lodger, there's a battle on the spot,"
And then, knowingly, she answers," most decidedly, we'll not,"
Oh, she knows a bit, just a thing or two.- Chorus.
