CHEERO!
 
div
 
Mister Carew was a gentleman who
Had a manner exceedingly gay
He never felt flurried or worried or hurried
The game he knew just how to play
If he should feel chippy he had one recipe
The made all his sorrows take wing
For he found that trouble was only a bubble
That burst when he started to sing.

Chorus: Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day
Cheero! How do we go? let's have a good time while we may
So don't give a hang for the weather
But join hands and all sing together
Cheero! Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day.


Carew met a miss and with some emphasis
He asked her to be Mrs Carew
Although she'd got freckles she'd plenty of shekels
So he fell in love, wouldn't you?
The lady said, 'Yes' to his question, I guess
So he called on papa in his flat
Pa shouted, 'You nincompoop, what is your income?'
Carew said, 'Oh never mind that'

Chorus: Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day
Cheero! How do we go? let's have a good time while we may
Two guineas is my weekly screw, sir
So we thought of living with you, sir
Cheero! Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day.


Carew made a call at a fancy dress ball
And imbibed rather freely of Hock
Next morn he protested, for he'd been arrested
He found himself placed in the dock
Judge said, 'What's he done?' and p'lice Sergeant X.1.
Answered 'Pris'ner' was - you understand
He'd heard a new ditty somewhere in the city
And warbled last night in the Strand.'

Chorus: Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day
Cheero! How do we go? let's have a good time while we may
The judge looked for signs of repentance
Then shouted out, 'This is my sentence
Cheero! Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day.'


Carew on the links is a golfer, methinks
But he foozled his drive yesterday
His iron then he foul'd and he only just scowled
Not a single golf word did he say
He missed a short putt and just murmured 'Tut tut.'
And the caddy thought, 'Something's amiss.'
The head of his cleek then flew into next week
And Carew then used language like this.

Chorus: Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day
Cheero! How do we go? let's have a good time while we may
A lady who heard the first canto
Said, 'I suppose that's Esperanto.'
Cheero! Deedle-um, doodle-um, didle-um doodle-um- day.
