DON'T HAVE ANY MORE MISSUS MOORE
 
div
 
Missus Moore, who lives next door, she's such a dear old soul
Of children she's a score or more, her husband's on the dole
I don't know how she manages to keep that lot I'm sure
I said to her today as she was standing at the door.

Chorus: Don't have any more Missus Moore
Missus Moore, please don't have any more
The more you have the more you want, they say
But enough is a good as a feast any day
If you have many more Missus Moore
You'll have to rent the house next door
They're alright when they're here
But take my advice old dear
Don't have any more Missus Moore.


The local Inn she uses is called the wooden hut
She's first one in at opening time, and last out when they shut
And when she's had a few, its true, she can't go very far
And you can hear them singing this to her across the bar.

Chorus: Don't have any more Missus Moore
Missus Moore, please don't have any more
The more you have the more you want, they say
But enough is a good as a feast any day
If you have many more Missus Moore
You'll never get to your street door
Too many double gins gives the ladies double chins
So don't have any more Missus Moore.


She's had no end of husbands that in love with her have fell
And this one is her seventh one and he don't look too well
She married him a year ago and on their wedding day
As they were walking down the isle I heard the parson say.

Chorus: Don't have any more Missus Moore
Missus Moore, please don't have any more
The more you have the more you want, they say
But enough is a good as a feast any day
If you have many more Missus Moore
I don't know what we'll do I'm sure
Our churchyard is so small they'll be no room for them at all
So don't have any more Missus Moore.
