Whistling Rag, The (31 Mar 1911)

[1st verse:]

Alexander Johnson had a music ear

He could whistle any tune he'd ever hear

Couldn't sing or hum, he was good as dumb

When it came to singing, but you bet he could whistle some

Liza heard him whistling a ragtime air

"Me for you," she whispered to him then and there

Now he can't decline, be it rain or shine

Liza keeps a-shouting all the time


Honey, whistle that whistling rag [whistle]

Fill your lungs with that whistling drag

Blessings upon the fairy who revealed my black canary

Honey, I can't reply, just 'cause my lips are dry

So, honey, whistle that whistling rag [whistle]

That's the whistling rag

[2nd verse:]

Alexander whistled till he caught a cold

Pretty soon the fever got a stranglehold

Doctor shook his head, looked at him and said

"Cut the whistle out," the doctor shouted, "And stay in bed"

Liza heard the doctor and began to shout

"Doctor, if you're goin' to cut the whistle out

Won't you kindly wait e'er it's too late?

Let me say before you operate"
