Testo della canzone Take A Little Tip From Father 20 Jan 1912 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:]
Old man Wilson had quite a family
Seven grown up boys
Handing out advice to his family
Was his only joy
They would come to him for his good advice
Almost ev’ry day
And when it came to the marriage game
He’d light up his pipe and say

[chorus:]
Take a little tip from father
Take a little tip from dad
Stay far away from the beautiful girls
Each little peach is a full grown lemon
Wedding chimes seven times
Out of ten are bad
But
If you find a girl like mother
Get married like your dear old dad

[2nd verse:]
Old man Wilson said to his family
I’m for married life
If a married man doesn’t have to see
Too much of his wife
Till you find a girl like your mother dear
Long you’ll have to roam
Your mother dear, seven months each year,
Would spend with her folks down home
