GET AWAY, OLD MAN, GET AWAY (Frank Crumit) Vernon Dalhart Now listen all you maidens about to choose a man Donít take one who is ancient, get a young one if you can Ďcos if you marry an old man, now list to what I say, Youíre sure to meet a young man whoíll steal your heart away For an old man he is old, for an old man he is grey, But a young manís heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Be sure to get a young man with red and rosy cheeks Donít get a man with a cane in his hand whose back is very weak Iíd rather marry a young man with pockets lined with silk Than to marry an old man with a hundred cows to milk For an old man he is old, for an old man he is grey, But a young manís heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Iíd sooner marry a young man with an apple in his hand Than to marry an old man with a hundred acres oí land Donít ever marry an old man and hereís the reason why His lips are all tobacco juice, and his lips are never dry For an old man he is old, for an old man he is grey, But a young manís heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Donít ever marry an old man whoís got the rheumatiz Youíll have to rub his creaking joins, if that ainít work, what is. Donít ever marry an old man, Ďcos when the weatherís cold A nice warm place to put your feet is better far than gold. For an old man he is old, for an old man he is grey, But a young manís heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Get away, get away, get away Get away, get away, get away Shoo fly, donít bother me Shoo fly, donít bother me Get away old man get away. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004)
