So what's the use of him, he never can keep you; You'll have to work from morn till night, that's what you'll have to do.

Sally you'll cry for me, you get back to Cousin Joe and sit all on his knee.

In about a twelve months after, young Sally came back to me And she said that she was sorry she'd ever been on that spree. Go back to Cousin Joe. Sally you can't come over me for I see you've got a baby to dance all on your knee. You really drive me mad! I'll have you up before the beak and I'll swear you are its dad. When that you get before the bench, they will not let you speak, And you'll have to keep the young one on thirty pence a week. So Billy, how can you serve me so?
I'm sure the child belongs to you and not to Cousin Joe. Sadly, Minnie died of cancer in when she was just Thankfully, Morris Albert has no incredibly sad story and famous offspring that will make you regret voting for his song.

The couple in the song both agree to meet at O'Malleys Bar, and don't seem all that miffed to discover they were both trying to cheat on each other.
