Baldheaded End of the Broom Love it is a very funny thing It catches young and old Just like a dish of boarding house hash To many a man it's sold Makes you feel like a fresh water eel Causes your head to swell You'll lose your pride Your love is tried Empty your pocketbook as well Cho: So boys stay away from the girls I say Give 'em lots of room 'Cause when you're wed they'll beat you 'till you're dead With the baldheaded end of the broom When a boy goes out with a pretty litle miss He talks as gentle as a dove He courts his honey and spends his money Just to prove he's solid in love When his money's all gone And his clothes in hock And he has no bread to chaw He'll call someone to load up his gun And vaccinate his mother-in-law Cho: Now young men take my advice Don't be in a hurry to wed You'll think you're in clover 'Till the honeymoon's over And then you'll think you're dead With a cross-eyed baby on each knee And a wife with a pimple on her nose You'll find that love doesn't run so smooth When you have to wear second-hand clothes. Cho: DS
