EVE WASN'T MODEST TILL SHE ATE THAT APPLE (We'll Have To Pass The Apples Again) (Chas. McCarron / Albert Von Tilzer, 1917) Everybody loves a girl who's modest, Everybody loves a girl who's shy, When a girl is modest and retiring You can bet she'll always get by Modesty began in the garden of Eden, In every book you'll find I'll admit it started in the Garden of Eden, But just bear this in mind. Just suppose that every girl was modest, Just suppose that every girl was shy, There would be no dust when days are windy To blow right in the naughty man's eye We'd have better business in our marriage market, Each man would surely mate When they start proposing they can see what they're getting, That's why some hesitate. Eve wasn't modest till she ate that apple That old apple to blame The minute that she ate it, she felt humiliated and hid behind the apple tree till darkness came If one little apple made the first girl modest, It ought to work now as well as then Once they only wore a leaf Clothes are getting just as brief, If every mother's daughter, wears dresses any shorter, We'll have to pass the apples again. Eve wasn't modest till she ate that apple That old apple to blame The minute that she ate it, she felt humiliated and hid behind the apple tree till darkness came If one little apple made the first girl modest, It ought to work now as well as then Way back in the olden days Men were fooled by girlie ways, For then we never knew them, but now we see right through them, We'll have to pass the apples again.
