Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'A handsome man stepped under the transom
I heard it in '55-'56 in the Air Force in Monterey, Calif.

It was a cold winter's evening. The guests were all leaving.
O'Leary was closing the bar
When he turned and he said to the lady in red,
"Get out. You can't stay where you are."
Oh, she shed a big tear in her bucket of beer
As she thought of the cold night ahead,
When a gentleman dapper stepped out of the crapper,
And these are the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her the things a young girl should know,
About the ways of college boys and how they come and go.
Now age has stolen her beauty and sin has left its sad scar,
So remember your mother and sister, Joe, and let Rosie sleep under the bar."
