BEHIND THOSE SWINGING DOORS

T'was Saturday night in an old mining town
Jake's bar room was merry and gay
While far from the laughter a family did wait
For Mom to come home with her pay
"What's keeping dear Mother, why doesn't she come?"
Stilly exclaimed through her tears
And Amos replied, "I'm sadly afraid
Our Mother has stopped for some beers"

Oh…Oh!
The doors swing in, the doors swing out
Where some pass in, and others pass out
Our Mother, I fear, has her nose in the beer
Behind those swinging door-or-ors,
(Hic)
Behind those swinging doors.

"Oh I shall go fetch her" the daughter declared
"She shan't bring disgrace to our name"
Then straight-way she ran to the corner saloon
To save her poor Mother from shame
"Dear Mother, Dear Mother come home with me now
The clock in the steeple strikes two" (Ding, Ding, Ding)
"Little Eiseley is waiting, the rent must be paid
Don't spend all your money for brew"

Oh…Oh!
The doors swing in, the doors swing out
Where some pass in, and others pass out
Through the smoke and the haze
There stood Mom in a daze
Behind those swinging door-or-ors,
(Hic)
Behind those swinging doors.

Each Saturday night at the corner saloon
The miners come in with their gold
And Mother blows in all her wages on sin
And Stilly blows home in the cold
"Dear Siblings", she wailed, "My mission I've failed,
Our Mother will ne'er mend her ways"
And the siblings exclaimed "We'll suffer the shame,
It's always the family who pays"

Oh…Oh!
The doors swing in, the doors swing out
Where some pass in, and others pass out
This story is told of a Mom and her gold
Behind those swinging door-or-ors,
(Hic – Burp)
Behind those swinging doors.
