I FOUND IT
 
div
 
If anything gets lost when I'm about
I'm amost sure to find it. Yes, I am without a doubt
My Uncle lost his bull-dog just a week or two ago
One night my uncle's orchard I had occasion to go
Through and...

Chorus: I found it, I found it, very very easily
But this prince of savage towsers
Grabbed the seating of my trousers
That's the place where he found me.


My brother bought some birdlime once to catch a bird or two
And birdlime, as you're well aware will stick as tight as glue
He lost it in the sitting room, the silly little elf
For on a chair he'd placed it, instead of on the shelf
And...

Chorus: I found it, I found it, very very easily
For that birdlime I went flop in
In that chair ten hours was stopping
And the bird he caught was me.


One night I went out skating, with some dear old friends of mine
We had a glorious hour or two all in the pale moonshine
A lady friend then said to me, 'This is really very nice
Be careful, though, for, over there, is a big hole in the ice,
And...

Chorus: I found it, I found it, very very easily
Through going where I didn't 'oughter'
I fell in ten feet of water
And a half-drowned rat was me.


We had a gas escape at home one night, so out of bed
I jumped to find the cause of it, but nearly lost my head
The smell was something terrible, but I began to shape
I struck a match and went to find that awful gas escape
And...

Chorus: I found it, I found it, very very easily
Then just like a clap of thunder
Roof and walls all went assunder
On the church spire they found me.
