Thread Name: Lyr Req: Let Her Sleep Under the Bar / Lady in Red
Subject: RE: ADD: 'my mother never told me'/Sleep Under the Bar
My mother sang it this way from her college days in the 40's.....

The weather was freezing, the guests were all leaving,
O'Leary was closing the bar,
Then the bartender said to a lady in red,
"Get out! You can't stay where you are!"
She shed a sad tear in her bucket of beer
as she thought of the cold night ahead,
When a gentleman dapper stepped out of the (phone booth)
and these are the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her the things a young girl should know.
The ways of fancy gentlemen, and how they come and go,
Life has left her weary, and love has left her a scar;
So remember your mothers and sisters, boys, and let her sleep under the bar."
