AND THE VILLAIN STILL PURSUED HER
 
div
 

She was a dainty little charmer in a picture melodrama
He was a 'villin' and only fit for 'killin'
He threw his arms around her neck
And said, 'Give me a kiss
Come along, do be sporty.'
Said she, 'Go away, it's naughty'

Chant: But the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
He hadn't shaved for quite a week
And he rubbed his bristles on her cheek
And when she said, 'Don't kiss me' he very nearly chewed her

She jumped into a ditch, I suppose
She thought he wouldn't spoil his clothes
But he pulled them off and said 'Here goes'
And the villain still pursued her

Chant: And the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
Then covered all in mud - oh dear
She ran into a laundry near
They tubbed her and they scrubbed her, they starched her and they blued her

Then through the mangle nice and flat
They rolled her out but, saying that
He was glad he wore an opera hat
The villain still pursued her

Chant: And the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
She grabbed a windmill going round
And soon went sailing from the ground
But oh! He grabbed her tootsies - could anything be ruder?

He climbed right up; said she, 'By gum!
I've got a wooden leg, old chum
You'll get a splinter in your thumb!'
But the villain still pursued her

Chant: And the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
An aeroplane came whizzing past
She jumped on, shouting, 'Safe at last'
And while the aviator made eyes at her and wooed her

By waiting till it blew a gale
And making a kite of the 'Daily Mail'
And climbing right bang up the tail
The villain still pursued her

Chant: And the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
She fell off on a desert isle
And a great big hungry canni-bile
Invited her to luncheon, and in a pot he stewed her

Then someone said, as round they slid
'I guess you’re in the soup now, kid!'
And she knew as she clung to the saucepan lid
The villain still pursued her

Chant: And the villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
She laid and simmered all the day
And it smelt lovely, so they say
Then a great big alligator, who sniffed it in Bermuda

Came up and swallowed all the lot
The girl, the villain, and the pot
And in its 'tum' she said 'Great Scott!'
For the villain still pursued her

Chant: The villain still pursued her, pursued her, pursued her
She might have had a West-End flat
And motor cars, the silly cat
She asked for all her trouble, but there, I won't abuse her

For now she's gone to -ahem! wow-wow
I won't say where, but any old how
She's gone to where you wish her by now
And the villain still pursued her.
