Any other time
ALL of us play our very
best game – Any other time. Golf or billiards, it’s all the
same – Any other time. Lose a match and you always say, “Just my luck! I was ‘off’ to-day! I could have beaten him quite half-way – Any other time!” After a
fiver you ought to go – Any other time. Every man that you ask
says “Oh, Any other time. Lend you a fiver! I’d lend you two, But I’m overdrawn and my bills are due, Wish you’d ask me – now, mind you do – Any other time!” Fellows will ask you out to
dine – Any other time. “Not to-night, for we’re twenty-nine – Any other time. Not to-morrow, for cook’s
on strike, Not next day, I’ll be out on
the bike – Just drop in whenever you
like – Any other time!” Seasick passengers like the
sea – Any other time. “Something . . I ate . .
disagreed . . with me! Any other time Ocean-trav’lling is . . simply bliss, Must be my . . liver . . has
gone amiss . . Why, I would . . laugh . . at a sea . . like this – Any other time.” Most of us mean to be
better men – Any other time: Regular upright characters
then – Any other time. Yet somehow as the years go by Still we gamble and drink and lie, When it comes to the last
we’ll want to die – Any other time!
