WHAT IS A GENTLEMAN?
“ What is a gentleman?” I as question we ask
As we look around us each day.
Is it the man with money to throw at the birds.
Or the man that is working his way?
Is it the man that smokes the ten-cent cigar.
And goes to the theatre each night.
Or is it the man with a good word to all,
And in dealings will always do right?
Is it a man that while walking around on the street
Tips his hat to the ladies whenever they meet.
Then goes home at night drunk and quarrels with his wife
•Who works every day for the necessities of life?
Is it the man that wears the tailor-made clothes,
And a collar th a t’s six inches high
Then turns up his nose at the working man’s clothes
On the street while he’s passing him by?
Or is it the man who rushes the can
Till he smells like a barrel of swill.
Or is it the farmer who tends to his ranch
And hauls his grain to the mill?
He is a man, when you meet on highway or street
That will give you a bright pleasant smile
And will lend you a hand whenever he can.
And show you a life th a t’s worth while.
The poor man’s the same as the rich man to him.
He will help you whenever he can.
When this man you meet, in alley or street.
He is the real gentleman.
