TILL MY WIFE COMES BACK!
By Berton Braley.
Oh, I was very happy
When my wife left town.
I said, "Well, here's a chappy
Who will do things brown;
IH trot the swiftest paces
On the primrose track;
I'll be kicking over traces
Till my wife comes back!"
So I traveled pretty rapid
For a day or two,
But I found the life was vapid
And its joys were few;
I tired of club and show house,
And of Tom and Jack,
And the house is simply no house
Till my wife comes back.
The rooms are damp and musty
And the food's low grade
And everything is dusty.
The beds aren't even made.
So comfortless the house is
That repose I lack,
And I "won't know where my things
Till my .wife comes back.
Her going's very recent,
But it seems a year,
For life is scarcely decent
When she isn't here.
I'm gloomy and I'm snappy
And the skies seem black,
And I guess I won't be happy
Till my wife comes back!
