GET AWAY, OLD MAN, GET AWAY (Frank Crumit) Vernon Dalhart Now listen all you maidens about to choose a man Don’t take one who is ancient, get a young one if you can ‘cos if you marry an old man, now list to what I say, You’re sure to meet a young man who’ll steal your heart away For an old man he is old, for an old man he is grey, But a young man’s heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Be sure to get a young man with red and rosy cheeks Don’t get a man with a cane in his hand whose back is very weak I’d 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 man’s heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. I’d sooner marry a young man with an apple in his hand Than to marry an old man with a hundred acres o’ land Don’t ever marry an old man and here’s 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 man’s heart is full of love Get away, old man, get away. Don’t ever marry an old man who’s got the rheumatiz You’ll have to rub his creaking joins, if that ain’t work, what is. Don’t ever marry an old man, ‘cos when the weather’s 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 man’s 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, don’t bother me Shoo fly, don’t bother me Get away old man get away. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004)
