  • And a danger lurks at the door,

  • I've known about it always,

  • But I never spoke before;

  • When you were only a baby

  • It seemed so very remote,

  • But you're twenty-one to-day, Willie,

  • And old enough to vote.

  • Never go to the polls,

  • They're dark and dreadful places

  • Where many lose their souls;

  • They smirch, degrade and coarsen,

  • Terrible things they do

  • To quiet, elderly womenā€”

  • What would they do to you!
