God Planted the Trees 
to Make small Benches 
But who made little Boys 
To Kiss little Wenches.
-----       -----       -----       -----       
Our Nurse she had a little Watch 
She Swallowed it one Day 
And now she's taking a little Gil 
To Pass the time away. 
-----       -----       -----       -----       
Why don't my Mabel Love Me, 
Why don't my Phyllis Dare, 
Why don't my Pauline Chase me, 
We'd make an excellent pair, 
I cannot Marie Studholme
She is Rich and I am Poor 
With burdens I am laden, 
I cannot Carrie Moore
-----       -----       -----       -----
