O'LEARY'S BAR

'TWAS A COLD WINTER'S EVENING, THE GUESTS WERE ALL LEAVING,
O'LEARY WAS CLOSING THE BAR.
WHEN HE TURNED AND HE SAID TO THE LADY IN RED, "GET OUT, YOU
CAN'T STAY ANYMORE."
SHE WEPT A SAD TEAR IN HER BUCKET OF BEER AS SHE THOUGHT OF
THE COLD NIGHT AHEAD.
WHEN A DAPPER PHI-KAPPER, STEPPED OUT OF THE CRAPPER AND
THESE ARE THE WORDS THAT HE SAID:
"YOUR MOTHER NEVER TOLD YOU, THE THINGS A YOUNG GIRL SHOULD
KNOW.
ABOUT THE WAYS OF COLLEGE MEN, AND HOW THEY COME AND GO.
NOW AGE HAS TAKEN YOUR BEAUTY AND SIN HAS LEFT ITS SAD SCAR.
SO REMEMBER YOUR MOTHER'S BOYS AND LET HER SLEEP UNDER
THE BAR."
NEXT TO THE GIN,
IN SOUTHERN COMFORT,
WITH HIRAM WALKER,
AND THERE WAS GRANNY SWINGING ON THE OUTHOUSE DOOR, WITHOUT
HER NIGHTY, AND GRANDPA YELLIN', "MORE, MORE, MORE."
HE WORE PAJAMAS.
