CHASE ME CHARLIE
 
div
 
Angeline for years had been upon the shelf, you know
Though she's forty - rather shady,
Angeline's a perfect lady
Leap years come and go, yet she's not tasted married sweets
And this is what she says to every single chap she meets.

Chorus: 'Chase me Charlie, Charlie chase me, chase me Charlie, do
I've got nine-pence in the bank - and it's all for you
I'm as fresh as a two-year old, don't leave me in the lurch
Oh, Charlie chase me, Charlie chase me off to church.'

Angeline is rather lean and doesn't carry weight

So you must be quick to pace her,
Sixteen miles an hour to chase her
Still, it sounds ridiculous, and takes one down a peg
To hear her shout out to a chap who's got a wooden leg,

Chorus: 'Chase me Charlie, Charlie chase me, chase me Charlie do
I've got nine-pence in the bank - and it's all for you
I'm as fresh as a two-year old, don't leave me in the lurch
Oh, Charlie chase me, Charlie chase me off to church.'


Angeline has lately been to Barnum's wond'rous show
'Pon my word she'd stay for weeks there,
Interested in the freaks there
Giant or the skeleton, she'll mash them if she can
To cap it all they heard her whisper to the legless man,

Chorus: 'Chase me Charlie, Charlie chase me, chase me Charlie do
I've got nine-pence in the bank - and it's all for you
I'm as fresh as a two-year old, don't leave me in the lurch
Oh, Charlie chase me, Charlie chase me off to church.'
