GOOD 'EAVENS MRS. EVANS
 
div
 

Emmalina Evans, all sixes and sevens
From a Fancy Ball at break of day
Though she didn't like it, Emma had to hike it
To her little cottage miles away
Only one more mile she had to go
When Emma heard someone shouting, oh!

Chorus: 'Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you so early in the morning
Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans, do be careful what you do
And don't forget the gipsy's warning
I've met a postman coming down the street
Also a policeman coming off his beat
But good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you
So early in the morning.'

Five a.m. was striking, Emma still was hiking
Suddenly the rain began to fall
Then she met a feller with an umberella
And he looked so silent, strong and tall
'Let me share your 'gamp' kind sir,' she cried
It was the village parson who replied,

Chorus: 'Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you so early in the morning
Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans, do be careful what you do
And don't forget the gipsy's warning
I've met burglars taking home their swag
Also the doctor with his little bag
But good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you
So early in the morning.'

Chorus: 'Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you so early in the morning
Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans, do be careful what you do
And don't forget the gipsy's warning
I've met mermaids down beside the sea
Also your husband where he shouldn't be
But good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you
So early in the morning.'

Wild and wet and weary, tired out and dreary
Emma reached her garden gate at last
Farmer's boy, Jack Horner, rushing round the corner
Knocked her in a puddle as he passed
In a heap of mud poor Emma sat
A milkman murmured as he raised his hat.

Chorus: 'Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you so early in the morning
Good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans, do be careful what you do
And don't forget the gipsy's warning
I've met mermaids down beside the sea
Also your husband where he shouldn't be
But good 'Eavens, Mrs Evans,
Who'd have thought of meeting you
So early in the morning.'
