Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'A handsome man stepped under the tra
Words are pretty much as I remember slurring them in my college days with minor exceptions:

"Oh 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 were the words that he said:"

The last verse is a bit different:

"Though age has taken her beauty, and sin has left its sad scar,
Be kind to your mothers and sisters boys ---- don't let them sleep under the bar!"

And how odd that just yesterday I met someone at a house party and during the course of conversation we found that we had many things in common, this song being one of them - so we proceeded to sing it much to the consternation of the other guests. But we had a blast.
