A man oft went to see a girl,
He called her his sweet precious pearl.
She did not tell him she was wed,
She'd let him find that out she said.
One night while they were tete-a-tete,
Her husband, who oft stayed out late,
Came home too soon and saw their fun,
And without speaking, fired a gun. [Repeat last 2 lines.]

Now why did he do that? Oh! wasn't it a shame?
'Twas done so suddenly, he surely was to blame, etc.

I to a well-known artist went,
On posing for him I was bent;
He said he'd paint my portrait well,
For I was (ahem) I mast not tell.
"How many sittings must there be?"
I asked him; he said "only three."
Alas! I had sat twenty-one
Before the portrait he had done.[Repeat last 2 lines]

Now why did he do that? Oh! wasn't it a shame?
'Twas done so artfully, he surely was to blame, etc.
