I loved him dearer than life.
I often thought the time would come
That I would be his wife.
His pockets, they were lined with gold,
Although he owned the cash,
With a diamond ring and a watch and chain
And a pretty little black mustache.
Oh, that pretty little black mustache,
That darling black mustache.
Every time I think of him,
My heart beats like a flash.
Oh, that charming black mustache,
Them darling black mustache.
If you must know, I caught a beau
With a pretty little black mustache.
(Mr. Detherow: "And that's all there is to that.")
