VP_016435 Verse 1My friends they were plenty in prosperity, 'Twas "Hello old fellow, nave a drink with me, You're my guest today, Bill put your coin away, I will feel insulted if you try to pay;" Since I lost my money, 'tisn't just the same, When I tell my troubles, they say "dat's a shame." Grasp my hand and shake it and they say so nice, "Listen, Bill, and take a little good advice." Chorus 1Ev'rybody gives me good advice, But then nobody offers me the price, Well, a glad hand shake and a good kind word Wouldn't buy a dinner for a humming bird, Consolation may be very nice, But money cuts an awful lot of ice, When you're feeling mighty blue, And you aint got a sou Ev'rybody gives you good advice. Ev'ryvice. Verse 2If kind words were money I'd have lots of dough, I'd get 'bout a million from each friend I know, "Cheer up, now, old fellow", ev'ry one will say, "Better times are coming, you'll have wealth some day". "When you're feeling hungry', someone said to me, "Now, don't sit and dream of chicken fricasee. Fresh air is as filling, and it's twice as nice, Listen, Bill, and take a little good advice."
